Submit events for Rethinking Race
Faculty and departments are encouraged to begin submitting proposals to facilitate Face-2-Face conversations. These events are facilitated group discussions allowing honest conversations among students and others who join in.
The Face-2-Face conversations are part of our annual series, Rethinking Race: Black, White and Beyond. Held this year Feb. 25 to March 8, 2019, the series provides a forum in which race-related issues can be discussed, examined and, hopefully, better understood. One of the best routes to understanding these issues is to talk about them.
Commitment to facilitate Face-2-Face conversations is minimal and involves moderating a respectful discussion among students and community members on a topic you propose. You don’t have to be an expert on the topic, but be informed. Questions should be directed to Dr. Stephen Brooks at email@example.com.
Help for students with academic or personal issues
College can be stressful for students as they balance academics with their lives outside of the classroom.
The University has a team of professionals ready to help students experiencing:
- academic issues (missed assignments; poor grades on exams, assignments and projects; repeated absences from class, etc.),
- mental health issues (depression, anxiety, substance dependence, etc.),
- financial issues, and/or
- personal problems (relationships, social contentedness, roommate compatibility, homesickness, etc.)
