"Eating healthy is so expensive! To be healthy I have to eat salads and make everything from scratch. I can’t eat the foods that are important in my culture or try foods from other cultures because they are unhealthy." We hear these misconceptions all the time and many of us start to believe they must be true. Eating a balanced diet can be accessible for all populations and there is no one ‘perfect’ diet. The first step in making nutrition available to a wider population is understanding that balanced eating comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Food for a balanced diet can come from grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants, food banks, home gardens, or farmers markets. Balance can be found in all different eating patterns around the world. This session will dispel common myths about nutrition and help you recognize that eating a balanced diet can be a reality for you too! We will also discuss nutrition services offered on campus by the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center and access to resources to support your nutrition goals.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals 1. Understand the composition of a balanced diet 2. Understand the composition of a balanced diet in different countries and geographical regions 3. Learn how to make a balanced diet work with any budget 4. Identify how to make balanced choices when eating out 5. Discuss how to make small changes towards eating a balanced diet Target Audience: 1. Individuals interested in learning what comprises a balanced diet 2. Individuals interested in learning about a balanced diet for a variety of audiences 3. Individuals interested in learning how a balanced diet can be accessible by all

Setting the Course: Inclusive Pedagogy on Semester at Sea
Presenters:
Robert Kling,Maite Correa,Lisa Daunhauer,Andrea Duffy,Jose Luis Suarez-Garcia
Category:
International Issues
Date:
Wednesday, January 15th 2020
Start Time:
9:00 AM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 312
Description:
This panel presentation features five returned CSU-based Semester at Sea (SAS) faculty members – four Global Teaching Scholars and an Academic Dean – who will discuss the challenges and successes of their voyage experiences with respect to inclusive community, and their approaches to inclusive pedagogy. Time will be provided for discussion and Q&A. The SAS floating campus represents a microcosm of a traditional campus with respect to diversity, privilege, marginalization, and the value of inclusive excellence. Within that context, the staff and faculty – known as “staculty” in a visible application of inclusive language – deliver a unique program of comparative international education aimed at helping create the next generation of effective global leaders. SAS offers a curriculum of about 70 courses as well as comprehensive student life programming, and an itinerary that includes some 50 days of in-country intercultural experience. The shipboard living-learning community offers all voyagers a high potential for social justice awareness and personal transformation, as well as for anxiety, misunderstandings, and culture clash that can be amplified in a relatively closed and close-knit social environment. As such, the SAS experience presents a focused opportunity for educators to teach, live, and learn inclusiveness, and bring new understandings and practices back to the CSU campus.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal is to share inclusive pedagogy/community experiences from Semester at Sea with faculty members, student life professionals, and others interested in inclusive community.
