Limited Capacity seats available

This session is draws upon student experiences with diversity and inclusion at LaGuardia. While LaGuardia boasts a student body with representation from all over the globe, it also faces the unique challenge of ensuring that each culture and ethnicity is respected and recognized at all facets of the institution, from student services to the classroom. Students will reflect upon what makes for a fruitful, meaningful, inclusive environment. Students will also share struggles and shortcomings in this regard, offering staff and faculty advice for handling the variety of issues inherent to such a racially and ethnically diverse institution.

Followed by a Q&A, the roundtable will emphasize the following:
  • Reflections of challenges with diversity and inclusion in the classroom;
  • Strategies (be they effective or ineffective) exercised by instructors in creating welcoming environments, de-escalating tension, discussing race, and creating inclusion;
  • Suggestions for administrators and staff in achieving their goal of inclusive, culturally sensitive programming and delivering service
FSOC hopes to use this as a platform for an ongoing conversation that will result in focused events around inclusion, ultimately continuing the Opening Sessions theme over the course of the academic year.
