Through the use of hands-on, self assessment, and interactive exercises, this session allows participants to examine their own diversity perspective to understand the role of beliefs, values and attitudes that exist in academia. The session will help participants understand their level of sensitivity to diversity, why other people behave in ways that are different, and why adjustment to sensitivities in academia may have different meanings for different people.


 As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a greater awareness of the value of human diversity
  • Appreciate the uniqueness of others by understanding what diversity is and is not
  • Value the willingness to adjust in a world of diversity
