Civility on Campus: Promoting Respect & Tolerance Across Campus
What: Live Webinar Forum
When: Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011~ 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Where: UMDNJ's Newark or Stratford campus.*
Panelists: Kathleen Hull & Sattik Deb, Rutgers University
There are plenty of examples of “ugly” behavior that can be found on any campus…some even making national news such as:
- The creation and posting of a YouTube video by college students telling a group of international students who talk on cellphones in the library to "use American manners."
- The case of fraternity pledges marching on a campus shouting a sexually offensive slogan.
- The secret videotaping of a student in a sexual encounter in a residence hall room.
- (See USA Today article "Civility a teachable moment on campuses")
What is civility? Is it an out-dated, 19th century idea? Or, is civility at the core of our capacity to function as integrated, respectful educational institutions where people live and learn together? Participate in this Forum and explore what these issues mean for UMDNJ.
Participants will learn:
- How to assess the needs of their community that fall under the umbrella of "civility."
- How a college or university decides if it would benefit from a civility program.
- How to identify the significant "players" who can be brought into the conversation and the programming.
- How much this kind of project can cost.
- How much time and planning it can take.
- How to identify the potential rewards and benefits of a civility project on your campus.
