Race and Social Identity in the Classroom
2017 Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning
Friday, October 20, 2017
9:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Lincoln Park Student Center 120AB
Each year, the Fall forum brings together members from across the university for a day focused on exploring issues related to teaching and learning. This year’s theme, “Race and Social Identity in the Classroom,” is especially important given our university’s commitment to the education of a diverse student body and in light of recent events, such as the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Terrell Strayhorn, PhD, will serve as this year’s keynote speaker and will also facilitate an hour-long workshop after lunch. Strayhorn is the author of 10 books and over 200 book chapters, journal articles, and other scholarly publications. His most recognized book College Students’ Sense of Belonging: A Key to Educational Success, available as an eBook from the DePaul University Library. He has given invited keynotes and lectures at more than 500 universities and conferences across the globe.
Participants are encouraged to attend the entire event but are welcome to come and go as their schedule allows.
