Description

In response to survey data and student feedback regarding deficiencies in diversity and inclusion education and experiences on campus, Viterbo University’s Office of Student Life collaborated with campus and community partners to create the Identities Project in fall 2017 to promote civil and constructive dialogue and provide education regarding identity, including but not limited to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and social class. Session participants will walk away with a roadmap on how to create a similar program; information regarding a civil dialogue model; a basic understanding of identities, intersectionality, and the Identity Wheel; potential pitfalls and challenges. The Identities Project is firmly rooted in, informed by, and assessed via the lenses of the mission and values of Viterbo University, Catholic social teaching, and student development theory.
