Roundtable on Diversity Series
The Roundtable Series is a forum for the campus community—faculty, staff, and students—to engage in conversations and reflections about subject matters that impact our lives, including our work and learning environments. The premise of the Roundtable is that every participant contributes to, and benefits from, the process. At “the table” everyone is equal, that is, every single member will be a valued participant in our discussions and reflections.
The Series provides a non-judgmental, intellectually enriching, and experiential space for members of the campus community to engage in inspiring, and sometimes difficult or controversial aspects of diversity processes.
The members of a Roundtable Series will engage for a period of time on a single theme. Each Series will vary in length depending on the subject and medium used for discussion and reflection. Some can last a few weeks, others a semester.
The Roundtable Series’ potential outcomes include personal and professional enrichment of our own understanding of the role that diversity has in our lives, looking at diversity through multiple lenses, and community building across campus constituencies.
