Roundtable on Campus Diversity

The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Programs and the Faculty Center are co-sponsoring a Roundtable on Campus Diversity which includes a panel of students, faculty, and staff facilitating the discussion. We are inviting members of the Pace Community to come together and take part in the discussion. We are hoping for a diverse group to attend and contribute to this important collaborative discussion. Some of the themes we will discuss include first generation students, being comfortable with uncomfortable dialogue, appreciating “the other” in the classroom, and whose voice is not being heard in the classroom.
Faculty Exchange Lunch

This Faculty Exchange Lunch will explore the topic of a faculty needs assessment. Discussion will revolve around the varying levels of support faculty seek in the ever changing landscape of higher education and what types of programming and workshops would they like to have facilitated during the semester by the Faculty Center.
