Faculty Peer-to-Peer Workshop Series

Have you ever wondered what it might look like for a professor from the School of the Arts or the School of Science and Mathematics to facilitate a Civility and Sensitivity Workshop? Well, the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) is giving you a chance to find out!

Through this new initiative called the Peer-to-Peer Workshop Series, OID has created a way for faculty to engage other faculty in important dialogues on diversity and inclusion in higher education. The first workshop was held on November 28, 2016, and was led by TEDU professors Drs. Keonya Booker, Ashley Vaughns and Sophia Rodriguez.

OID will continue to offer this series and is currently accepting proposals. Selected presenters are awarded faculty development funds which can be applied to the purchase of books or supplies, professional travel, or speaker expenses all related to College of Charleston work. Sessions should last for no more than 90 minutes.

To take part in this exciting opportunity please send an email to oid@cofc.edu describing the topic you'd like to address and why you believe it is relevant to your fellow faculty members at the College.
