SMTD DEI Workshop: Chavella T. Pittman

Friday, November 10, 2017

11:00am, Earl V. Moore Building, Britton Recital Hall


Classroom Experiences of Marginalized Students

Inclusive classrooms are important to the retention and success of diverse students as well as to further the learning of all students. The interactive talk will summarize the research on the classroom experiences of marginalized students. While primarily informative, this talk will encourage faculty and administrators to consider how their own behaviors might discourage or support inclusive classroom environments.

Chavella T. Pittman is an associate professor of Sociology at
Dominican University. Her research interests and expertise
include higher education, interpersonal interactions &
marginalized statuses. Some of her teaching publications include
"Race and Gender Oppression in the Classroom: The Experiences of Women Faculty of Color with White Male Students” (Teaching Sociology 2010) and "Exploring How African American Faculty Cope with Classroom Racial Stressors” (The Journal of Negro Education 2010).
