Division of Student Affairs

Events/Programs

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.

Soup n’ Stories is meant to create a space for colleagues and friends to connect through our own unique narratives of life. Stories give breath to our experiences, but we often have a million reasons why we cannot seem to hear the perspectives being told. We open ourselves to understanding when we will acknowledge that each person’s story is their truth of the world. In author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Ted Talk, The Danger of a Single Story, she states “The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with the stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”

This month’s Soup n’ Stories will feature Brittany Philbert, Assistant Director of Housing & Residence Life as our guest speaker. She will talk about her life experiences and her journey as a first-generation college student.

Next Soup 'n Stories: Wednesday, March 28th from 12pm to 1pm in the Masonboro Island room
