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.

Next Teal Talk: Thursday, December 14th at 12pm in the Wrightsville Beach room of the Fisher Student Center

The TealTalks conversation:Experiences of sexual harassment are not new, nor are they few. The impact of this behavior is far reaching in virtually every corner of our society. As we acknowledge this moment, many cannot help but wonder how much of a lasting change this moment will have on our culture. Bring what is on your mind to dialogue with colleagues. ALL genders are encouraged to participate in this dialogue.
