Understanding & Overcoming Implicit Bias in Higher Education

Friday, April 21, 2017 - 12:30pm

Whitsett Room • Sierra Hall 451

Alex Madva Event FlyerThe College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is proud to present Understanding & Overcoming Implicit Bias in Higher Education with special guest, Alex Madva from Cal Poly Pomona

While most people in the United States sincerely reject prejudice and discrimination, many of us exhibit patterns of unwitting bias in our thoughts, feelings, and actions—and displays of explicit intergroup hostility and division are increasingly visible as well. This interactive session will explore the social, cultural, and psychological origins of intergroup biases, and the most problematic effects such biases can have on students, faculty, staff, and administrators in higher education. We will also explore strategies that individuals and institutions of higher learning can employ to combat prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination.
