The 'Value of Difficult Conversations in the Classroom' is a forum that will bring together and support our students, and our faculty teaching our students, in the first weeks of classes.

Given the very real and fraught conversations elicited by the election, its racism, xenophobia, sexism, and so much else, the AC faculty will address questions such as what is of value in us coming together around difficult conversations? How might we, or can we, best prepare to engage our students in articulating their thinking and learn with each other?
