UCITE Session for Thursday, October 23: Creating an inclusive classroom. Liz Roccoforte, Naomi Sigg.

As you may know, the CWRU campus community is becoming more and more diverse with every incoming class. In order to create the most inclusive environment for learning possible, we thought it would be useful to meet some of the individuals who can help faculty think about some aspects of this diverse community, and the resources that are available for support and information.

This session will give participants strategies for creating a learning climate that is supportive and inclusive of all students.

This Thursday, we will be welcoming ​several individuals who play important roles on our campus: Liz Roccoforte, Program Coordinator of CWRU's LGBTQ Center, who will provide current information about LGBTQ issues; and Naomi Sigg, Director of Multicultural Affairs, who will help explain how her office can help members of our campus community. Both of them of them will discuss ​how ​to best respond to issues that may arise in one's classroom related to gender, race and sexuality.

Please join us for this discussion from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend each session by emailing us at ucite@case.edu.
