ALFRED POINT OF VIEW
Last year our first campus conversation was: Why is It Important to have difficult conversations, and as a follow up to this question we have decided to have a student panel in talk show forum discuss a difficult topic.
STUDENT PANEL DISCUSSION: IS ALFRED UNIVERSITY INCLUSIVE?
Inclusive excellence focuses on providing access and support to students and employees from a variety of racial, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds, physical and intellectual abilities, sexual orientations, and gender expressions to create a genuinely diverse campus environment.
What is the goal of the difficult conversation?
Difficult conversations help us understand different perspectives on the same topic. A difficult conversation is a planned discussion about an uncomfortable topic or a negative experience where the goal is to share different perspectives, build mutual understanding, and develop respect (not to persuade or win").
Why is it important to discuss difficult topics with students?
"The appeal of 'the hard stuff' is that it encourages students to think critically about social life, that is, to question what they learn and make meaning from what they learn, to synthesize information from various sources, and to evaluate ideas."
The Aim of Conversation Analysis
Principally, it is to discover how participants understand and respond to one another in their turns at talk, with a central focus on how sequences of action are generated.
We look forward to having you attend this very important student-led panel discussion.
Snacks will be provided!
