Though the University of Michigan aspires to cultivate a climate that is welcoming to the members of their diverse student, faculty, and staff bodies, we know that the lived experiences of many in our communities don’t always align with these aspirations. Join the CRLT Players for "Cuts: Responding to Student Climate Concerns" which invites participants to think together about the many forces that can shape campus climate both positively and negatively. Comprised of a series of vignettes focused on a Muslim student over a year as she encounters multiple issues of bias, the sketch depicts how such incidents build up over time to create a negative climate for targeted students. Discussion focuses on exploring the issues, as well as potential responses to them.
This workshop is open to all staff, faculty, and graduate students of the Physics/Applied Physics Department. Please RSVP by clicking the link below by Wednesday, February 6 to attend.
