Movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo continue to garner media attention throughout the world and have shaken our moral fiber. What makes people tap into their moral courage and inner strength to stand up for social injustice, inequity, and abuse? What is our social responsibility as members of a Jesuit university to speak up in constructive ways?
This panel moderated by Prof. Bernie Mayer, faculty in the Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NCR) Program, will focus on what people at Creighton University can do and are doing on campus to surface and address issues of social justice, which takes awareness and courage. Panelists are members of our Creighton community and are voices on campus who stand up!
This free event is open to all Creighton University students, faculty, and staff as well as the Omaha community at large. It takes place Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 12:15 - 1:15 p.m. at the Creighton Campus Cardiac Center Auditorium, 3006 Webster Street, 3rd floor. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please register here.
This event is brought to you by Creighton University’s Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NCR) Program, as part of its vision of forming conflict competent agents of social change for an equitable world, and the 2040 Initiative. Both programs are in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, Creighton Graduate School.
