Campus Conversations on Social Stereotypes Start March 20

March 15, 2018 – Campus Conversations is an initiative generated by the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) to gather people from various disciplines across Santa Fe College for discussions, learning opportunities and the sharing of ideas.

This month’s Campus Conversation will discuss Claude M. Steele’s book “Whistling Vivaldi.” In the book, Steele discusses “how pervasive stereotypes can actually influence behavior and performance, and how these stereotypes, left unexamined, perpetuate themselves.”

There are a few copies of Steele’s book available for review ahead of the discussion. Get a copy by registering for one of the sessions through CT3’s Professional Development Workshops.

Sessions will be held on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, March 20, from 12:30 – 1:45 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 21, from 3:15 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Friday, April 6, from 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Steele’s work can be previewed by watching Stereotype Threat: A Conversation with Claude Steele on YouTube.
