Martin Luther King, Jr. Days Of Dialogue Schedule Of Events – Day Two

- #ITooAmWyoming: CHALLENGING RACIAL MICROAGGRESSIONS ON CAMPUS
12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
Wyoming Union Center Ballroom
Over the past year, students of color across the United States have launched innovative campaigns aimed at raising awareness about racial microaggressions and their effects on campus climate. This workshop aims to engage UW students, faculty, and staff in a rigorous and reflexive dialogue about racial microaggressions on our own campus and what we can collectively do to foster a safe and inclusive campus climate. Participants will be split into small groups to engage in a carefully facilitated dialogue about Black student experiences of racial animus on campus and how various stakeholders can practically work towards the promotion of a more inclusive campus climate. It is, ultimately, our hope that this one-hour workshop will be transportable to smaller units, programs, and RSO’s across campus to foster campus-wide dialogue and activity.
