Submit events for Rethinking Race

Faculty and departments are encouraged to begin submitting proposals to facilitate Face-2-Face conversations. These events are facilitated group discussions allowing honest conversations among students and others who join in.

The Face-2-Face conversations are part of our annual series, Rethinking Race: Black, White and Beyond. Held this year Feb. 25 to March 8, 2019, the series provides a forum in which race-related issues can be discussed, examined and, hopefully, better understood. One of the best routes to understanding these issues is to talk about them.

Commitment to facilitate Face-2-Face conversations is minimal and involves moderating a respectful discussion among students and community members on a topic you propose. You don’t have to be an expert on the topic, but be informed. Questions should be directed to Dr. Stephen Brooks at sbrooks@uakron.edu.

  • academic issues (missed assignments; poor grades on exams, assignments and projects; repeated absences from class, etc.),
  • mental health issues (depression, anxiety, substance dependence, etc.),
  • financial issues, and/or
  • personal problems (relationships, social contentedness, roommate compatibility, homesickness, etc.)
