Legacies + Layers = Lenses (Campus Diversity Conflicts: Methods for Managing the Unmanageable) (eLearning: OEO016)

Instructor(s) & Course Description

Instructors: Tia Doxey

Course Description:

CONFLICT is a word that strikes fear in the hearts of most people. Unresolved conflicts, with the added dimension of diversity, including racial/ethnic differences, sexual orientation, gender, and religion to name a few, prevent positive, sustained personal and professional growth. Participants look at the world through their own set of spectacles, or perceptual filters, comprising what they have been taught and what they have seen, heard, and experienced. These perceptual filters are lenses through which everyone looks at differences such as race, ethnicity, gender, and nationality. This interactive session offers ideas and skills to assist university faculty, staff, and students in addressing the management of negative conflict in proactive, constructive ways. Various methods, including appropriate diversity training, coaching, group facilitation, and mediation are showcased and discussed.
