- 2014 Dealing with Difference Institute
- Time: All Day
- Location: Multicultural Center, Western Illinois University, Macomb Campus
- Description: The 2014 Dealing with Difference Institute will revolve around the theme, Social Justice and Education. As Professor Barbara Ransby reminded 2013 institute participants, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s was not about celebrating diversity; it was about equity and social justice for everyone in the United States. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other Civil Rights workers gave their lives for justice, freedom and equality. What is the responsibility of today's educators to pursue these same goals? How do they realize this responsibility? How do they help their students do the same? 2014 DWDI participants will grapple with these questions.
