Centre College Upcoming Events

Thursday, February 16

 The Diversity Office, The Diversity Student Union, and The Center for Teaching and Learning are collaborating on two events featuring Dr. Khuram Hussain, Associate Professor of Education at Hobart and William Smith Colleges:
 
 4:10 p.m.-5:15 p.m. in the Grissom Reading Room in the Library
 Dr. Hussain will share his reflections on using intergroup dialogue techniques in a community-based learning course.  This course, which brought students and community members together to share knowledge, develop skills for dialogue, and build equity, aimed to create spaces where all participants were equally empowered.  Following Dr. Hussain’s reflections, we invite you to stay for a discussion of the ways we might use mutual empowerment models of community-based learning here at Centre. 
 
 7:00 p.m. in the Evans-Lively Room
 Dr. Hussain will lead a convocation on community dialogue.  One of the core challenges of our 21st century is the question of difference and diversity. How we deal with that question will set the destiny of our generation. We have all witnessed the ways in which differences can lead to distrust, and misunderstanding, ultimately isolating people from their own neighbors, preventing us from working towards common solutions. At such times we fail to see one another and we make decisions about each other that are rooted in misconceptions and bad information. Yet difference and diversity are not going anywhere.  So how do we all engage the diversity around us? Through facilitated community dialogue, we will listen to each other, share our experiences and stories, and learn how to work towards common solutions.
