Here are some ways the Office of DEI worked with faculty:
Dr. Roy Kaplan visited to engage faculty with his program, Keys to Creating Community Through Dialogue, which helped faculty think about how they facilitate conversation in their classes.
The Pride Center of the Capital District provided training that raised topics important for faculty to be mindful of and respectful of the diversity and unique needs of LGBTQIA+ students, and to create an inclusive environment that supports their academic and personal growth.
Defying Deficit Mindedness, presented by the Office of DEI at J-College, asked the Sage community to participate in conversations and activities designed to enhance their understanding of equity-mindedness, particularly when it pertains to the characteristics of race consciousness, and utilize concepts of equity-mindedness to promote an inclusive environment.
Inaugural Faculty Fellow Dr. Emilly Obuya was appointed in 2022 to assist in the implementation of the DEI strategic plan while supporting faculty, departments, and programs as they foster inclusive teaching and learning practices.
Dr. Brenda J. Allen joined us for a session about valuing and appreciating differences to ultimately build a more just society. Dr. Allen is the author of the recently published 3rd edition of the book, Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity, a resource currently being utilized to support teaching in the General Education Core.
