Summer DialogueBeginning July 1, The Words of Engagement Intergroup Dialogue Program (WEIDP), out of the Office of Diversity Inclusion, in partnership with embraceRace, will host a five-week Intergroup Dialogue on Race for UMD Faculty and Staff. The Faculty/Staff dialogue is a professional development, not-for-credit program meant to engage faculty and staff across campus divisions, identities, and disciplines in an intergroup discussion.

When we refer to faculty and staff, we are referring to all levels. For faculty, this includes adjuncts, lecturers, assistant professors, graduate students teaching, professional-track, tenure-track, and tenured professors. For staff, this includes contractual, exempt, non-exempt folks from all departments and facilities at UMD.

This Faculty/Staff Dialogue will focus on how we relate to and experience race and racism in our lives and work, and how that is connected to larger systems of power, privilege, and oppression. This dialogue will accommodate up to 14 participants, across disciplines and social identities that represent UMD's populations.

If you are interested in being considered for the dialogue, please complete the Faculty/Staff Dialogue Form by June 10, 2019. Please contact dialogue@umd.edu with any questions.

Those interested must be available to attend four of the five sessions at a minimum.
