MTI Lunch | Division of Student Affairs<br><span style="color: #993300;"> Incivility in the classroom: Did you really just do that?</span>

Dr. Craig Chesson, Assistant Dean of Students, Director of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services
Free Catered luncheon. Have you witnessed an increase of incivility in your classroom? If so, you are not alone. Because of national discourse regarding safety on college campuses, faculty and staff seem more conscious of disruptive, threatening, and concerning behaviors. Examples include: use of email, list-serves, or Facebook to verbally attack or slander classmates as well as bullying through intentional isolation of colleagues on team projects. Reactions to students’ differences can lead to class conflict, impacting a student’s ability to learn and an instructor’s ability to teach. This session will share interesting case studies in classroom conflict. Whether you are a student or a faculty member, all participants will leave this session with strategies to address difficult situations and promote inclusivity.

RSVP: Session limited to 25 participants. Lunch is provided (We will contact you with lunch options and take your order).
