Human being and human doing: Why addressing campus climate must begin with us

Description: It goes without saying that our current times are unprecedented; however, the calls for racial justice, for inclusive campuses, for social justice...those aren't. In fact, they're ever growing concerns for many of our students. This session will engage participants in an exploration of how we can explore our own biases, thoughts, and feelings related to campus climate in order to be effective at doing the work to make campus an inclusive place for everyone. This session will especially focus on moving away from waiting for institutional action to addressing our own behavior in critical and intentional ways.

Dr. Denise Williams-Klotz is the assistant director of Multicultural Student Affairs at Iowa State University. For over fifteen years, she's worked with college students and colleagues in a variety of ways, including offering training on diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Denise co-founded Cardinal Women*, a program to empower women faculty and staff, and she in her spare time, she writes romance novels.

A New Way of Thinking: Neurodiversity and Student Employment

Presented by Sarah Neeley, Student Employment Coordinator at Indiana State University

Diversity has been a hot topic on college campuses and in the workforce recently, we have taken many steps to include anyone who doesn't look just like us, but what about those who don't think like us? Neurodiversity as an idea has existed for ages, but the term is fairly new. In short, neurodiversity is the variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood, and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense. Through this presentation, we will look at neurodiversity, as an asset, how to make the interview and on-boarding process for accessible, and also brainstorm ways to help prepare our neurodiverse students for roles as student employees and beyond.

Registration Information: Must be logged into your MASEA Membership to register.
