This half-day course titled Diversity and Inclusion: 21st Century Higher Education will identify some of the common and distinctive issues that impact diversity and inclusion experiences in colleges and universities.
Participants will be introduced to the Three-Dimensional Model of Higher Education Diversity that summarizes and informs participants of key social identities in higher education, core areas of examination, and focal groups, and how these three areas combine to shape diversity and inclusion across higher education.
There also will be discussion around key individual factors that shape identity and life experiences such as race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, socioeconomic status, and unconscious bias. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences.
The course, offered by Learning and Development, takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Feb. 23, at Johns Hopkins at Eastern, Room A210. Register here.
