| MAP
(Breakfast/Lunch/Refreshments Provided)
Registration is limited to SCU faculty and staff.

Faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to register for one of three sessions facilitated by Professor Karla Scott to engage the practice of Intergroup Dialogue, a practice in which “the invitation” to speak and be heard facilitates shared understanding.  This series of community building dialogues is intended to engage differences and divisions within our campus community and resource participants to bridge understanding across social, cultural, and religious identities. A closer examination of the pedagogy and strategic communication practices of Intergroup Dialogue will demonstrate how extending “the invitation” on our campuses can support the Jesuit tradition of education to transform self, others, and society.

Additional Opportunity with Professor Scott:
Social Justice Education and Transformation at Jesuit Institutions: The Invitation of Intergroup Dialogue
Tuesday, October 14, 2014 | 12:00-1:15 PM (Lunch Provided)
Parlors B and C, Benson Memorial Center
co-sponsored by Communications Department, Women's and Gender Studies, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education

Intergroup Dialogue is a community building approach to social justice education that integrates educational theory and research to bridge understanding across social and cultural identities. The goal is to create a space and place where “the invitation” to speak and be heard facilitates shared understanding. This interactive workshop will explore social identity, how it influences everyday lived experiences and why ‘diversity” in Catholic Higher Education is not enough. A closer examination of the pedagogy and strategic communication practices of Intergroup Dialogue will demonstrate how extending “the invitation” on our campuses can support the Jesuit tradition of education to transform self, others, and society.
