Faculty/Staff Volunteers to Facilitate Discussions - Register Online
7 pm - 9:30 pm
Request from Valerie Mostyn, Program Coordinator, Brockport Student Government
On March 4th at 7 pm BSG is having T Leon Williams come to campus and speak. His speech is titled "Bias in the Face of Diversity." Mr. Williams has 20 years of experience with multicultural affairs that he utilizes to educate students on facilitating difficult discussions. " Students will be equipped to address physical, spoken or written act of abuse, harassment, intimidation, use of vulgarity, bullying and any restriction or prevention of free movement of an individual." Especially in light of recent events on our campus, we want this to be an opportunity for learning and growth for our students. Not only to understand perspectives, but also to engage in conversations. Mr. Williams will be lecturing about this difficult topic, and we are seeking some guidance on how to turn this into an interactive discussion after the lecture. We lack the expertise to lead students through these discussions, and would like to encourage Faculty and Staff members to reach out and help us facilitate this event.
