Navigating Departmental Politics. A Play! Thurs. March 31, 2016


Dr. Autumn Reed, Director of STRIDE and Coordinator of Faculty Diversity Initiatives at UMBC, invites PROMISE to a play on UMBC’s campus with the CRLT Players of the University of Michigan. Dr. Reed has served as a PROMISE Mentor-in-Residence, and facilitator for the 2016 PROMISE roundtable on faculty diversity that was part of the Research Symposium at College Park. She notes the following:

 As part of UMBC’s continued efforts recruit and retain a diverse and inclusively excellent faculty, we are actively seeking ways to improve departmental climate. Bringing the University of Michigan’s CRLT Players to perform “Navigating Departmental Politics” on March 31st from 10-12pm and from 4-6pm is central to our efforts. This interactive performance provides an opportunity for us to reflect and participate as community in a facilitated discussion on this topic.

Performance #1: 10 AM – 12 noon

Performance #2 (Repeat): 4:00 PM – 6 PM

Location: University Center Ballroom, UMBC. Directions. The University Center (UC) is in the center of the campus. The Building houses the Chik-Fil-A and Starbucks cafes, on the first floor, the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences Dean’s Office, the English Language Center, and the Discovery Center. The ballroom is on the 3rd floor of the UC. The back of the UC leads to the Engineering Building. The front of the UC faces the Biology and Math/Psychology buildings on UMBC’s main walkway.
