April 18 & 19: Erase the Hate event

Library entrance area [near the blue wall]:

  • April 18: 2pm-4pm
  • April 19: 11-12:30 & 2-4

The College of Health and Human Services Inclusive Excellence Task Force is hosting an Erase the Hate event.

This interactive event will allow participants (students, faculty, staff, and administrators) to identify common negative stereotypes they have about different topics (e.g., religion, race, disability status, gender) and discuss mechanisms for replacing those negative stereotypes with positive aspects about each topic.

Participants will express their opinions on white paper (4’ x 6’) via markers. The topics will be provided on the paper by members of the Task Force.
