Dinner & Dialogue: Cultural Values in Academia
- Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm
- Strand Union Building, Ballroom B - view map
We all come the university to learn and experience new perspectives, but that doesn't mean that we don't bring our own unique perspective stemming from our own cultural values. Our own cultural values and understanding of the world is what makes each of us special and great contributors to the campus community. So how do we manage our cultural values within the context of academia? Sometimes it feels like our culture clashes with academic values and norms, while other times it fits perfectly. This Dinner and Dialogue we will discuss our various cultural values and how they fit within Academia. We also will discuss when there seems to be a conflict and strategies on how to manage those conflicts. As always, dinner will be provided.
