Event Details

Controversial topics often enter our classrooms, sometimes uninvited by the instructor.  When part of the planned curriculum, these topics are often avoided in class discussions.  Topics related to race and culture can spark strong feelings on the part of students as well as instructors. 

The workshop will focus on our presenters’ experiences both as non-White students and professors navigating classroom and sometimes out-of classroom discussions related to race and culture. They will also talk about their successful and unsuccessful strategies regarding how to handle the uninvited statements and how to encourage dialogue in these topics when part of the curriculum.

Panelists are Dr. John Chaney, Regents Research Professor of Psychology and Director of the OSU Center for Native American Studies and Dr. Rubin Pillay, the Daniel White Jordan Clinical Professor and the Interim Director of the Center for Health Systems Innovation at Spears School of Business and Center for Health Sciences at OSU.  Dr. Sue C. Jacobs, Team Leader of the OSU Difficult Dialogues Program, Associate Professor in SAHEP-College of Education and the Ledbetter Lemon Counseling Psychology Diversity Professor, will moderate and facilitate the discussion.
