Diversity Workshops held in May
The first two diversity workshops for faculty were held in May at Union College and Hamilton College. The workshops were conducted by two facilitators from the Anti-Defamation League’s Campus of Difference™ program: Raymon Parker and Kenneth Roman. The half-day program focused on awareness of stereotypes and cultural assumptions , their affect on interpersonal interactions, and how to respond when confronted with situations involving prejudice and discrimination. The initial feedback from participants has been very positive. We will undertake a more detailed assessment of the program so that it can be adjusted as necessary before the remaining participating institutions conduct the program in the fall.
