On behalf of the Latino Faculty & Staff Association, join us as we host a webinar presented by the 2017 NASPA Region I Latinx/a/o Knowledge Community on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 12pm-1pm. The webinar will be streamed in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning Classroom located in Classroom Building 1 at the Orlando Campus.
Below is a description of the webinar:
LATINX, LATIN@, LATINA/O: A START TO INCLUSIVITY WEBINAR
Wednesday, August 2nd 12pm-1pm EST
This webinar will give everyone a foundation on where the terms Latinx, Latin@, and Latina/o come from. All participants will have a better sense of what these terms mean. Participants will also have an opportunity to dialogue with panelists through a facilitated discussion, to develop their perspective and hear from others. This is intended as an educational opportunity to build a foundation around these terms, in order to foster inclusivity within our community. Allies are welcome!
Please email Justin Andrade to RSVP. This is a great opportunity to learn how to support our Latina/o/x students and campus community. Feel free to bring your lunch!
24 faculty and staff members gathered for one afternoon each month this past academic year for self-reflection, respectful group dialogues, and introspective approaches to difficult diversity and inclusion topics.
As of Fall 2016, 25% of the UCF student body identifies as Hispanic/Latino, placing UCF on the cusp of federal designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). This session will provide a general overview of the Developing HSI Program, as well as explore the ways in which UCF faculty and staff members can help cultivate an inclusive HSI culture.
Dr. Muñiz is the Assistant Director of MASS and President of LaFaSA here at UCF.
- Tuesday, February 7 from 1-2pm in Global UCF room 101
Please note we’ll be rolling out a new registration system sometime this semester, but for now, registration is the same: Faculty, USPS, A&P register on MyUCF, OPS and students register by emailing email@example.com with their name, UCFID, course title and date.
We’re looking forward to a great semester!
The UCF Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is continuing the “BE YOU” Storytelling Project – the sharing of the life stories of our diverse students, faculty and staff in our semester newsletter, as well as at campus events. Every member of the UCF community brings their own life story and combination of identities and experiences to our campus, and UCF is the richer for it.
