Keywuan Caulk, Assistant Director for the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities, returns to our campus this year to present “Language Matters”. The Language Matters Workshop is a 60 minute program which deconstructs the ideas and impact that negatively charged words used in society and how their uses create a damaging environment for all of society. The presentation uses audience dialogue as well as video examples to demonstrate how microagressions hinder our ability to have a diverse and inclusive society/community. All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend. Light fare will be provided.
