Quaye to discuss how we talk about race

Dr. Stephen John Quaye will deliver a talk on race at the rescheduled Student Affairs and Academic Support division meeting Friday, Oct. 30.  In his presentation, “Why Is It So Hard to Talk about Race, and How Can We Get Better at It?” Quaye will encourage the audience to consider the challenges of talking about race and offer ideas for furthering conversations on our campus. He also invites members of the division to submit questions in advance.

The meeting will be 8:30-10 a.m. in the Russell House ballroom. Coffee and network will precede the meeting beginning at 8 a.m. Registration is not required.

Staff who have a need for an accommodation or who would like to submit announcement slides for the division meeting should email email Jacob Hartfield by Monday, Oct. 26.

Quaye previously was scheduled to present Friday, Oct. 9. That event was canceled as UofSC was closed to all but essential personnel following that week’s devastating flooding.
