This symposium will bring together faculty and students to talk about a variety of matters related to the teaching of race as well as larger issues of race/racial diversity at Seton Hall. The morning session will be focused on the classroom experience; panelists will engage such questions as how they teach about race/invite discussions about race in their classes, what’s it’s like to be a student of color at Seton Hall, and the challenges and issues of teaching/talking about race in the classroom. The afternoon session will engage larger, institutional questions, such as curricular diversity beyond individual classes, faculty/student diversity on campus, and resources available/needed for encouraging and promoting conversations about race on campus. The symposium will be interactive, encouraging open discussion and inviting diverse viewpoints.
