Speaking the Language of Diversity and Inclusion

Presented by

T. M. Linda Scholz (Associate Professor, Communication Studies) and Richard G. Jones, Jr. (Assistant Professor, Communication Studies)

We learn culture through language and communication. Without a shared language, cultural change is difficult at best. In an effort to understand what it really means to integrate diversity into EIU’s student life activities, curriculum and pedagogy, and faculty development as well as into the Charleston community, we need to share a common language.

This workshop is designed to help us understanding what is meant by “diversity,” “racism,” “white privilege,” “oppression,” “homophobia,” and the list goes on, in an effort to work toward creating campus and community climates that move beyond tolerance to understanding and integration.
