How can we live out our mission of inclusion and respect for all persons?
"May no one who enters this campus each day be excluded from our respect and reverence."
-From Brother Dom's prayer at the Staff Breakfast, 2010.
The Campus of Difference workshop is a day designed to create community among faculty and staff and to begin conversations about what it means to be a diverse community. This workshop is required for all faculty and staff, at least once every three years.
This is a highly interactive day (no lecturing!) with lots of time to talk with other faculty and staff from across campus that you probably don't know. You will also come away with a resource book for future reference!
The workshop is always held on campus and runs from 9 am-4 pm, and we request that you arrive by 8:45 AM. Lunch and morning/afternoon snacks are provided. There is always a vegetarian lunch option, but if any other special dietary requests are needed, please indicate that when you sign up. Remember, this is a full day commitment, requiring your presence for the entire time. This is critical to the program's success. The dates for the current term and early summer are:
There are also regular follow-up activities to the Campus of Difference workshops and the titles and dates of those are sent out regularly by email to the faculty and staff list-serves. If you are interested in becoming a facilitator or presenter for any of the follow-up activities, please email Sunny Bradford or call X 4910.
