Intercultural Dialogue Seminar (COM 691)
Saturday, November 17, 2018
11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Students and seminar assistants in the COM 691 Intercultural Dialogue Seminar -- Reslie Cortes, Ian Derk, Ana Hommadova, Mary Kura, Becky Leach, Laura Martinez, Corey Reutlinger, Tyler Rife, Nandita Sabnis, Emilee Shearer, Megan Stephenson, Megan Towles. Ana Terminel Iberri, Jay Taylor, and Rob Razzante -- successfully designed, organized, recruited, and facilitated this intercultural dialogue workshop.
Over a five-hour period, 30 undergraduate students came together to (a) explore challenges to inclusion and dialogue at ASU, (b) suggest factors that are key to building an inclusive climate for dialogue, and (c) propose actions and ideas for specific contexts, including classrooms, student organizations, fraternities & sororities, interaction with international students, and campus life generally.
Participants in the workshop were impressed with the skill and professionalism of our graduate students, and it was a valuable experience for everyone involved.
