‘A Campus of Difference’ workshops set

As part of Hobart and William Smith Colleges' continuing commitment to addressing diversity and inclusion on our campus, three four-hour workshops will be presented on Sunday, Aug. 19 and Monday the 20th by two representatives of “A Campus of Difference,” a program component of the Anti-Defamation League’s “A World of Difference Institute.”

The Institute is a leading provider in the development and delivery of diversity and anti-bias training and resources on college and university campuses throughout the country.

Leading the sessions will be Jack Zaccara, who has a long, distinguished career in public education and has received several awards honoring his teaching skills; and Liz Fernandez, a bilingual Latina from the Dominican Republic, whose studies focused on Sociology and Education with extensive coursework in Race and Gender Relations, the Dynamics of Power, Privilege and Oppression and Sexual Identity. She is a former school administrator and consultant.

Sessions will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19 and from 8 a.m. to noon or 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20, all in Coxe 7.

A representative from each campus office is requested to attend to help provide a bias-free environment for our students, faculty and staff. Questions should be directed to Sandra Bissell in Human Services, Robb Flowers in Student Affairs or Alejandra Molina in Intercultural Affairs.
