Division of Student Affairs


Join the Student Affairs Diversity Committee for Teal Talks. This dialogue space is intended to allow colleagues to share thoughts and ideas across a variety of topics that speak to our intertwined personal values and professional responsibilities of our field. This space is not limited to Student Affairs, so please invite colleagues and faculty from across the university.  Resources links for conversations are provided as references of possible topics discussed. Conversations are driven by participants, and review of resources is not an expectation for participation.

Next Teal Talk: Thursday, September 21st, 12-1:30pm in the Wrightsville Beach Room

The TealTalks conversation:

National conversations are always local. Charlottesville did not happen in a vacuum, but the debate over symbolism of the Confederacy in our own community continues as recently as this weekend.  How do conversations about compassion and “rule of law” rattle the perceptions of safety of those around us.  Bring whatever is on your mind to dialogue with colleagues. Join us on Thursday, September 21st at 12 PM in the Wrightsville Beach Room (2017) of the Fisher Student Center.
