The Biggio Center would like to faculty, staff and administrators to a set of university-wide series geared toward students who want to share their experiences with culture in the classroom.

Beginning this spring, the Biggio Center will be hosting a set of anti-oppressive education dialogues. The dialogues will continue through the fall. The initiative will explore experiences with culture in the classroom.

Through open dialogue, participants will explore effective methods to incorporate cultural diversity and challenge oppression in the context of discipline-specific teaching needs. 

The conversation will continue with a few colleagues at the Biggio Center’s "Toward an Inclusive Climate" event in the fall semester. It will explore the opportunities of anti-oppressive education and address diversity and oppression topics in the classroom. 

The Biggio Center is actively seeking perspectives on how to better incorporate multicultural and anti-discrimination components into the classroom.

Dialogues will be held on the following dates:

Dialogue 1: Exploring the Opportunities of Anti-Oppressive Education

10-11:45 a.m.
