Strategies for Responding to Microaggressions

We live in divisive times, which may increase the likelihood that people will be targeted or witness microaggressions. Our classrooms, labs, and other spaces shared by students and instructors are no exception to that.  If left unaddressed, microaggressions negatively impact the learning climate and can hurt students’ engagement, their sense of belonging and academic success.  For more information, please visit the event page.
