April 19, 2022, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm Buffet Lunch Provided
You are cordially invited to a unique and valuable conversation on diversity, equity, inclusion and sense of belonging that has the potential to impact your own working environment, but also that of your students and colleagues. In this workshop, we will present research on challenges related to faculty diversity and equity nationally and at MTU; we will also equip you with tools to create a beneficial academic climate for everyone. This in-person workshop is open for tenure-track and lecture-track faculty hired in 2020 and 2021. Lunch will be provided. Following a welcome and introduction, we will present national and MTU data on patterns of inequity in academia and explore tools and approaches we can use at MTU to improve the environment for professional success and advancement. The workshop will include small group discussions and will focus on specific issues related to Research, Teaching, and Service.
