Campus Climate Dialogue

September 5, 2019, 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Students, Instructors, Post-doctoral students, Researchers

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. As we enter the next academic year, our first event will be an open dialogue, supported by an early read of preliminary data from the 2019 campus climate survey.

Together, we'll consider whether the results of the survey 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.

My Experience campus survey information will be presented by Division of Equity and Inclusion Institutional Research Analyst Andrew Eppig. Light lunch provided for those who RSVP by September 3.


Log in via CalNet to register for Campus Climate Dialogue. Registration closes on September 4, 2019 - 5:00pm.
