NCLUDE registration for small groups now open

 This is the second year the Office of Academic Success and Intercultural Services (OASIS) has hosted the multicultural hall of fame event.

The Nebraska Community of Learners — Understanding Diversity through Education will offer 15 small learning groups for the fall semester. Groups will begin meeting in September.

Registration has opened for NCLUDE learning groups. NCLUDE small learning groups offer a space to talk candidly over the course of a semester, addressing inclusive excellence as a part of everyday interactions. These small groups are intended to develop relationships in concentrated areas of introspection to help students, faculty, staff, alumni and the larger community understand and embrace the opportunities to create a greater sense of inclusion for all.

The fall slate of NCLUDE small groups are led by emerging and established diversity and inclusion leaders from across the university, including members of Career Services, the Center for Transformative Teaching, Student Affairs, College of Engineering, Graduate Studies, the Honors Program and the Office of Research and Economic Development.

“Anchors volunteer to lead the groups, and they choose the topics that NCLUDE groups address each semester.” said Jennifer PeeksMease, assistant vice chancellor for inclusive leadership and learning. “People are often surprised at the variety topics we address in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and these NCLUDE groups are a great example of that variety.”

Learning group participants commit to meeting with the same small group of six to 12 people six times over the semester. Participants will have designated learning materials to prepare for each meeting, and the discussions will focus on applying those materials through self-reflection and everyday action. Registration closes on Aug. 25, although priority will be given to those who register early. Most groups will begin meeting between Aug. 29 and Sept. 20. See group descriptions, meeting times and dates and also how to register here. All are invited into this community of care.
