Don’t Forget to Register for LU’s Diversity Conference

Derald Wing Sue renowned author, psychologist and faculty member at Columbia University will deliver a keynote address entitled, “Microaggressions in Everyday Life”.  His remarks will emphasize how these everyday microaggressions impact higher education.

In addition, presenters will provide insights on topics ranging from technology in the diverse classroom to creating institutions that are welcoming to international students. The conference also provides networking opportunities among professionals interested in making sure that we teach all students well.

The conference was planned to occur at a time when faculty and people in the teaching profession would be more available to attend. However, we are all teachers and learners in some sense. So anyone with an interest in these topics is encouraged to attend.

Derald Wing Sue Addresses “Microaggressions in Everyday Life” on August 18

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional which communicate hostile, derogatory or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.

The most detrimental forms of microaggressions are usually delivered by well-intentioned individuals who are unaware that they have engaged in harmful conduct toward a socially devalued group.

This keynote address will show how microaggressions are manifested in institutions of higher learning, and how it impacts students, staff, faculty and administrators from socially devalued groups in our society.
