A Campus of Difference: Valuing Diversity on the Teachers College Campus

On March 7, the Office of Personnel Services held a day of training on "Valuing Diversity on the Teachers College Campus." Twenty-five members of the campus community, including President Levine, Dean Zumwalt, Associate Deans Baldwin and Jennings, attended the program.

Steven Katz and Yvonne Taylor, facilitators with the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith's A World of Difference Institute, drew on the collective experiences of the participants to insure open communication and dialogue.

The institute was formed by the Anti-Defamation League to foster intergroup understanding. The program's agenda examined concepts of stereotypes and assumptions; discussed issues related to discrimination and bigotry on campus; provided participants with ways to empower themselves; and identified how diversity on campus enhances the environment.

Similar workshops on diversity were held in the fall of 1999 with a total of 81 members of the TC community attending.previous page
