Community Agreements

The Teach-in, entitled Power, Privilege and Difficult Dialogues, has been planned for the purpose of mutual education among students, faculty and staff.

As part of this teach-in, we are asking all participants to consider the role they play in the learning process. As such, we have developed some COMMUNITY AGREEMENTS to guide the day:

  • Be aware of your own cultural identities in terms of values, beliefs, power and privilege when speaking.
  • Speak from your own experience instead of generalizing (“I” instead of “they,” “we,” and “you”).
  • Allow multiple interpretations of others stories to arise, rather than sticking to your first interpretation, to ensure that you are not invalidating the experience of others.
  • Listen actively and respect others when they are talking. Utilize the WAIT Framework and ask yourself “Why Am I Talking?” as a way to think before you speak about the purpose of your comments.
  • Respect others. Do not be afraid to respectfully challenge one another by asking questions and staying curious, but refrain from personal attacks; focus on ideas.
  • If someone says something that offends you, or that you feel is grossly inaccurate, point it out and call the person in to greater dialogue. The person pointing this out to you is doing so to help everyone gain deeper understanding.
  • To maintain the spirit of safe dialogue, we ask that you refrain from using recording devices to capture images or conversations. This includes cameras, cell phones, and tape recorders.
