11:30 am - 1:00 pm    Mindset

Workshop / Student Affairs

From earliest childhood, we establish a fixed or growth mindset. Those who foster a fixed mindset believe their abilities are limited and worry excessively about meeting the expectations of others, living in fear of judgment. They under-perform due to perfectionism and anxiety and avoid or make excuses. Those with a growth mindset believe anything is possible with effort. They are willing to take healthy risks and view challenges as opportunities. They perform to their ability and often exceed the expectations of others, but aren’t afraid to fail, viewing mistakes as key to learning. This workshop will outline the characteristics of the growth mindset; provide examples from academics, the arts, athletics and business; and summarize activities conducive to the development of such a perspective.

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm    If These Halls Could Talk-Film/Diversity Dialogue with Director, Lee Mun Wah

Special Event / Access & Diversity Center

Director Lee Mun Wah brought together 11 college students to discuss what it is like on campuses across the country today. The students shared the frustration and anguish of trying to be understood and acknowledged on campuses that are predominantly white. Their stories are starkly emotional and raw, filled with incredible tenderness, courage and pain. The issues that they challenge us to look at are equally provocative, begging to be heard and confronted. If you've wondered why students/faculty of color are leaving our campuses, if you struggle to understand students from other cultures, if you don’t know what to say or do when a conflict occurs around diversity issues, this film will help model for you what it will take to have conversations on diversity that are both authentic and life-changing. This film will provide a glimpse into what is still missing and what is needed if we are ever going to come together in our classrooms, on our campuses and in our communities.
