Abstract/Description

Kennedy Union 310

The Creating Inclusive Community initiative is in its sixth year at UD. It was established to foster productive dialogue around social justice, intersectionality, and privilege in order to model the types of practices that could empower our community members to be agents of change and to help create sustainable change on campus. Over that time, five cohorts (and next semester a sixth) of students, staff, and faculty have taken a 15 week mini-course on privilege, diversity, and inclusion, and then attended a diversity and social justice. We would like to share our experiences over the last five years, and encourage attendees to join us in the work that we are doing to foster inclusive excellence and build community on campus. Developing our awareness and consciousness of social justice issues and needs on campus means that we will be prepared to engage and participate in making that change possible.

Goals for Attendees

Engage faculty and staff in curricular and co-curricular structures that are both highly experiential and collaborative, and designed to foster institutional learning outcomes of diversity and social justice aimed at educating the whole person. Our intended audience is primarily faculty and staff members that are looking for similar opportunities and/or strategies to educate and empower students to pursue change on campus; secondarily, our audience would be administrators who are looking for ways to enable and reinforce structural change on campus.
