Examining the Academy: Helping a Centuries-Old Institution Create a New Culture

Friday, September 20, 2013

Watch this event here!



This discussion shifts our view internally to the academy itself, examining how campus structure and culture affect student, faculty, and staff interaction, satisfaction, and success. Racial, ethnic, and women/gender studies continue to reveal the impact of ideologies, social structures, economics, and politics on the institution. Acknowledging the research university’s hierarchical organization, how can we work across roles, job codes and structures to increase respect and productive interaction to create a community that learns and works together?

This is a companion to the Office for Equity and Diversity's Critical Conversations about Diversity and Social Justice series at the University of Minnesota. Co-sponsored by the University Libraries.
