Val-YU-ing Our Peers

At Calumet and Stong Colleges, we strive to foster inclusivity and to celebrate diversity. Our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) team implements programs that allow students to learn about intersectionality and the ways in which we can achieve inclusion and equity within our school community. One of our programs includes a brand-new workshop calledValYUing Our Peers!

Whether we are learning in a physical classroom or through an online format, it is inevitable that as students, we will experience some challenging social interactions. Disagreeing about a controversial topic, using harmful speech, and misusing pronouns or terms associated with racially minoritized groups are just some of the ways in which conflict can arise among peers.

In theValYUing Our Peersworkshop, Community Development Coordinators, Stefanie and Emery, will prepare you to prevent and deal with such instances of conflict. We will discuss some types of social challenges that may occur in an educational setting, how to engage in mutually respectful dialogue, how to manage disagreements, and how to navigate various issues that come up through small group work. Attendees will also engage in some interactive scenarios and a concluding Q&A session.
