Educ 202: Dialogue
In this multi-section course, students will engage in an intergroup dialogue involving students from at least two different social identity groups. Participants will learn from each other's experiences, examine social justice issues on campus and in the community (e.g., gender roles, immigration, violence, access, race and gender in sports, sexism and racism on campus, ally relationships), and explore different perspectives and conflicting issues using constructive approaches to dialogue and the bridging of differences.
The class will meet for eleven weeks starting Thursday, January 30th . Please note that all sections will also meet on Saturday, February 15th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

SPIRE Instructional Videos
Undergraduate Advising worked with OIT to put together 3 SPIRE instructional videos that incoming students were referred to (sadly, we don’t think too many saw them, but they’re still available and pertinent!).
These can find be found here: SPIRE instructional video(scroll down, right panel).
They were hoping to complete some more such videos
Other videos that are useful and helpful to students are the following:
• Moodle instructional videos
A financial literacy program was just launched for students, called Buttonwood. This short video will give you a short synopsis of this program.
