Triton College Hosts Change Together Symposium
Triton College will be hosting Change Together: A Symposium with Faculty and Students on Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 12:30-2 p.m., in the Student Center Cafeteria (B Building). The event is for Triton students, staff, and members of the community.
The goal of the symposium is to bring the Triton community together to share information and insights about building better classrooms and improving the college experience for every student.
The symposium will also celebrate the culmination of the National Endowment for the Humanities Grant. This grant allows faculty to build new courses that offer human diversity credit for students, in various topics such as Latinx, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and LGBTQ+ voices.
The Change Together symposium will open with comments from the project director, Dr. Elizabeth Collins. Other speakers will include:
- Professor Gail Krahenbuhl (English): The Anti-Racist Classroom.
- Professor Lisa Samra (Speech and Theater): Maximizing Student Choice in a Collaborative Classroom.
- Professor Maxi Armas (Spanish/Humanities): Why Triton Needs Latino and Latin American Studies.
- Dr. Christina Brophy (History/Humanities): Centering Marginalized Voices in the Classroom.
