Campus of Difference Programs

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:

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Friday, December 11, 2015

Thursday, January 21, 2016

Friday, June 3, 2016

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.
