Lunch & Learn: Building Bridges to Belonging at St. Lawrence University

Friday, March 5, 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:15pm
Virtual (Zoom)

As part of Diversity and Inclusion week, join Dr. Jeffrey Frank and Grace Harkins for a conversation on belonging at St. Lawrence University.

In this workshop, we will discuss how to promote belonging in the classroom and across campus. For St. Lawrence to be a place of belonging, it must be a place where we don’t attempt to cover or ignore our differences. Rather, we need to make sure that our campus genuinely welcomes and encourages diversity. Belonging is not assimilation, it is an aspiration to welcome difference and grow and change through the experience. Grace Harkins ’21 will discuss her belonging project and ways that student life can make St. Lawrence a place where students experience belonging. Prof. Jeff Frank (Education) will discuss what professors can do to foster belonging in their classrooms and courses. We hope this workshop will be especially interesting to anyone working with students in an advisory role, be it as a student leader or a staff/faculty member.
