    Creating Change in Your Classroom to Support New Majority Students

        Thursday, October 29th, 2015 from 4:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. in Anderson Center 305

    Organized in collaboration by DISC, the Office of Multicultural and Diversity Initiatives, the First-Generation Student Engagement Committee, Academic Success, and the CTL.

     

    Join Dr. Rashné Jehangir— Morse Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota— for an interactive evening workshop based on her research and extensive work with first-generation college students.

    First-generation college students make up a large part of “new majority” college students and are a significant, growing student population at Hamline as well as across the college landscape. Dr. Jehangir’s research will frame an exploration of how Hamline faculty can create inclusive and effective courses and classroom spaces that will enhance the learning of all students, while also helping new majority students to academically succeed. Dinner will be included in the workshop. Space is limited; please RSVP via Google Form by Tuesday, Oct. 27. If you have questions, please contact ctl@hamline.edu.
