Contributions from a LMU Student Panel

Though we, as faculty, interact with students every day and share space with them, we are often unaware of their thoughts and feelings about what they are experiencing in the classroom. Over the years, I have tried to remedy this by engaging students in conversations about how they experience their identities in the classroom. Specifically, we have conversed about the ways in which solo-status (i.e., being the only one of a particular group in the room) and stereotypes affect participation and learning, and about ways in which faculty and peers create safe or unsafe spaces for learning and transformation to occur. Inspired by and building on these conversations, this panel presentation will give students from a variety of groups and backgrounds an opportunity to speak to and with us about their experiences of identity in the classroom. Though the session will begin with students discussing their experiences, the majority of the time will be spent in dialogue.

This event is part of Adam Fingerhut’s Faculty Associate project on Diversity in the Classroom.
