Interested in activism?  Currently an activist? Then join Diversity Advocacy for Power to the People: Learning and Leading for the Democratic Ideals workshops.

Diversity Advocacy has partnered with Educational Administration and Foundations’ Associate Professor Pamela Twyman Hoff and Associate Professor Beth Hatt to offer a new exclusive series of interactive workshops for a limited number of students. This series of workshops will create a space for students to critically analyze some of the issues and perceptions that give rise to student activism.

Goals of the workshop series include:

  • Build coalitions across racial, gender, identity, and ethnic boundaries
  • Develop and utilize higher level conceptual skills
  • Assist students in developing the critical habits of mind, disposition, attitudes, and behaviors that demark a good citizen
  • Increase students’ understanding of the practical application of democratic principles
  • Promote accountability and social responsibility
  • Provide students with a counter-space to interrogate and sort through issues and problems

This series is limited to 25 students! For those interested in attending, we strongly encourage signing up today.  Register here.

Each workshop will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on the following Fridays.  You must be able to attend ALL workshops in order to be considered.
