When Hate Happens on Campus: Faculty Talking Points

As EMU works to address incidents of discrimination, bias, and hate on our campus, we encourage our faculty to become an active part of the discussion and solution. Students often express that they wish faculty were more active in addressing these topics in the classroom. Please utilize this Discussion Guide from the Faculty Senate's CAIARE Committee to help guide you on facilitating these discussions in your classroom.
