Since Spring 2016, the Teaching in Troubled Times dialogue series has broached many topics essential to the well-being of our students and of our campus community, broadening discussions about inclusive teaching. As we enter a new academic year, please join us to kick off a "semester of learning," anchored by our signature panel-driven programs as well as workshops and discussion. Those who participate in the full series are eligible for recognition by Vice Chancellor of Undergraduate Education Cathy Koshland and Vice Chancellor of Equity & Inclusion Oscar Dubon.

Our first event will be an open dialogue, supported by campus climate data from several recent surveys. Together, we'll consider whether the survey results support our own experiences; how the data might shift our expectations of our relationships with students; and what resulting efforts individually and collectively could be designed to provide and equitable and fully inclusive classroom.

Campus survey information will be presented by Division of Equity and Inclusion Institutional Research Analyst Andrew Eppig.

Light lunch will be available beginning at 11:45am for those who RSVP by September 3.
