    Microaggressions are the commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental insults, both intentional and unintentional, that communicate negative slights to a person or group, based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion (Sue, 2010). They can have profound cumulative mental and physical impacts on individuals and institutional climate.

    This 90 minute workshop will introduce participants to microaggressions. We will also practice and develop fundamental skills for recognizing and interrupting  microaggressions on campus, in the classroom and in ourselves.
