Engaging Students Around Diversity and Social Justice
Olya Glantsman,  Liz McConnell (College of Science & Health), and Trey Victor Dellucci (Northwestern University)
Undergraduate years are a time for cultural exploration and self reflection, and university classrooms are ideal environments for engaging students around oppression, privilege, and social justice. While these topics help students learn more about themselves and their world, engaging them is not always easy, and there are many possible barriers to successful social justice education. Presenters will help the audience members gain skills and knowledge as well as practice creating contexts and curricula that value student diversity and engage issues of social justice. 

Intercultural Communication & Contexts Within Diversity 
Veronica Appleton (College of Communication) 
We define intercultural communication very broadly as communication between people from different countries, different co-cultures within the same country, gender, age, religion, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, language, socio-economic class, or whose lives vary in other seeing and interacting. At times, people perceive their intercultural interaction as intergroup rather than interpersonal. With this in mind, the 30-minute interactive session will encourage students to acknowledge their biases, and examine the significance, nature, processes, contexts, and applications of intercultural communication.
