Micro Aggressions - What Are They?
Kenan, K-300, 7PM - 8PM
Understand the impact of everyday verbal or nonverbal signs or gestures, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership. Sponsored by Black Student Association and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
Join us as we celebrate diversity and inclusion on campus. The overarching themes of this year’s event are Recognize, Value, and Act. Students, faculty, and staff will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of daily activities and panel discussions.
Recognize: to realize and acknowledge the identities, privileges, and differences in our community.
Value: to celebrate, more than tolerate, all types of human differences.
Act: to take specific actions to improve our community’s climate of inclusivity.
