Special Edition of Diversity Dialogues - Where Do We Draw the Line

Tuesday, September 10, 2019
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Mellon Conover Room

In this series of Diversity Dialogues sessions, there are no easy answers…the contentious and complex issues facing equity and inclusion in higher education and in our country more broadly! Acts of Bias and Hate on Campus: Dismissal vs. Education There is a rise in the number of implicit and explicit bias incidents on college campuses that communicate to some that their presence is not welcome. As college campus inclusion officers investigate these incidents, often there are calls to dismiss the offending student, faculty, or staff member from an institution. No campus is exempt from wrestling with this issue as part of supporting and encouraging a healthy campus climate. What are the complexities related to this decision? Legal considerations? Join hear from a panel of Equity and Inclusion Officers from Pittsburgh area universities and also share your thoughts.
