Activism, Community Engagement and the Graduate Student Experience
Administrators in graduate/professional student services work with students who face many obstacles and challenges unique to graduate student life. In today's political and social climate, these challenges have created a desire for increased activism amongst graduate and professional students. Presenters will focus on best practices, legislation and legal precedent, as well as use current events that will assist professionals in advising and supporting graduate and professional students who are activists on campus and in their communities. This workshop will also touch on current issues such as unionization, freedom of speech, Black Lives Matter, Title IX, etc.
