Join a larger Conversation next week: Talking Constructively About Race in the Classroom, Wed. February 6

Next week please come to a campus-wide event very much in the spirit of Conversation One.  It’s called  “Continuing the Conversation: Talking Constructively About Race in the Classroom -A Panel Discussion for Students, Faculty & Staff”

Panelists Anthony Dandridge (Black Studies) Vanessa Plumly (German, WGSS and Jewish Studies) Reynolds Scott-Childress (History) Carolyn Corrado (Sociology, Latin American & Caribbean Studies) Mark Colvson (Sojourner Truth Library) will lead a panel discussion on ways  educators handle the topics of race and racism in the classroom environment.

This will be an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to discuss what goes on in their classes and offices. Our focus will be on building a more inclusive and welcoming environment of all who claim, “we are SUNY New Paltz.” We will have a constructive and productive conversation in which the goal will be learning from each other and voicing many perspectives on the meaning of diversity and how this concept enriches classroom discussion.

Date:  Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Time:  3:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Location:  CSB Auditorium
