Short Films & Conversation: Race, Bias & Identity

Is it weird or awkward to talk about race? Have you ever thought about how race, racial identity, and implicit bias influences your everyday life? Or how these influences are built into the fabric of the United States? 

If you want to learn more about these topics, come to our short film and conversation series on "Race, Bias, & Identity!" hosted by your Honors College Student Diversity Officers.

We invite you to take part in some or all of this 3-week short film series. It examines the constructions and consequences of racial identity and implicit bias in the world, specifically in the United States. 
  • There'll be snacks, so come by and grab a treat!

  • Do we all experience the same America?
  • Hear short testimonials from those talking about their racial experience in America across different groups

Week 3: Hyphen Nation
Monday, November 19th
  • Who's African-American or Asian-American? Aren't we all just American? What about those who belong to more than one racial group?

Be Well Boilers: Tip #10
Core Values, Becoming a Learner

Why are you here in the Honors College?
  • To make a lot of money later?
  • For the experience?
  • B/c you were in Honors in high school?
There are a lot of reasons we all have for being here. However, at the end of the day, according to communication scholar Matt Sanders, the answer to that question should be: to become learners.

This means that we don't just go to class to get the grades needed for graduation. Instead we need to become involved in class and use the opportunity to learn as much as possible.
 
The ability to learn is the most important skill you can gain from being in college and will help you succeed in any career you choose. Learning never stops.
