In celebration of Islamic Heritage Month, the University of Guelph Muslim Students’ Association and the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences Dean’s Office present:
Addressing Islamophobia in the Classroom: Improving the Student Experience
We humbly extend an invitation to University of Guelph faculty, students and staff, and hope you will join us for this workshop led by the National Council of Canadian Muslims.
This workshop examines the pedagogical foundation for creating universities that are welcoming and inclusive to everyone and looks at how Islamophobia may be impacting our schools and classrooms. As a group, we will explore Islamophobia and some common myths about Islam and Muslims and will also examine how Muslim students are impacted by negative public discourses about their faith. The workshop provides case studies, resources and recommendations for educators, administrators and campus leaders to support efforts to promote equity, diversity and inclusion at the University of Guelph!
Join us for this 90-minute workshop at the McLaughlin Library Florence Partridge Room (Room 384) from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5. Light refreshments will be provided.
