RE: Feb. 26 Faculty Workshop with Sylvia Hurtado
I wanted to give a friendly reminder and encourage you to attend a workshop for all faculty that Dr. Sylvia Hurtado will offer on Thursday, Feb. 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Room 135 of the New Lecture Building.
Dr. Hurtado is associate professor of Higher Education at the University of Michigan's Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education. She has served on the Board of the American Association of Higher Education, the Association for the Study of Higher Education, and Council of the Division J (Postsecondary Education) of the American Educational Research Association. She is the author of articles and reports related to her primary interest in student educational outcomes, campus climates, and diverse students in higher education. Her recent book is entitled "Enacting Diverse Learning Environments."
Dr. Hurtado has coordinated several national research projects and is launching a new federally sponsored project on how colleges and universities are preparing their students to achieve the cognitive, social and democratic skills that are necessary to participate effectively in a diverse democracy. For the workshop, Dr. Hurtado will discuss the principles underlying the link between diversity and learning on campus that have implications for students' acquisition of those fundamental skills.
Please reply to Linda Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. today if you plan to attend this important workshop.
