Panel presentation at the 2014 UC's Diversity Conference:Join a panel of students and librarians who will showcase their collaborative events focused on exploring cultures through personal experiences and library resources. The most recent event, Across Nations: Diversity Speaks, was a big success thanks to student engagement at all stages of planning and presentation. International and study abroad students planned, publicized and moderated the event. Student contributions ranged from social media publicity to the icebreaker – a culture shock video - to preparing ethnic foods and wearing traditional clothing. Most importantly, the inclusive and open dialog at the event allowed students to share their perceptions of other countries, including misconceptions that were corrected by students from those countries. The event serves as a model for utilizing student expertise and enthusiasm for enhancing cross cultural understanding and global engagement.
A strong implementation of zero-tolerance policy pushes students out of the classroom and into the world of criminal offense. Our curriculum will address these issues by equipping teachers and students alike to promote student voice in the classroom. Through bringing knowledge and creating awareness to race, class, gender, and sexuality, students will be enabled to furthermore act in a political manner for social justice.
The education field has historically underrepresented teachers based on gender, race, and sexual orientation. This has led to a severe lack of diversity in the field. By utilizing professional workshops, educators will have greater awareness of barriers that have caused such underrepresentation. Educators will be given tools to reflect on how this facet of the educational system can be improved.
