Minding the Gap: Navigating Cultures at Williams, all-faculty retreat

The Office of the Dean of the Faculty (DoF) and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity (OIDE) will host the second annual all-faculty retreat, “Minding the Gap: Navigating Cultures at Williams,” which will provide a unique opportunity for faculty to come together. The retreat will be held on Tuesday, May 16th, from 9:00am-1:30pm at Mount Hope.

Last year, we used student feedback to focus on classroom climate and teaching cultures. This year, our topic will be “unit cultures and campus climates.” Our conversations will be informed by, among other things, results from our most recent HERI survey, and feedback that the Committee on Diversity and Community (CDC) has been collecting on faculty experiences of the classroom.

We will begin with a light breakfast and finish just after lunch. We ask that faculty RSVP here by Thursday, May 11, 2017, so that we may plan accordingly.
