The event, sponsored by the Student Affairs Diversity Committee, will focus on instances of racial inequality.
The Student Affairs Diversity Committee at Cal U is sponsoring a “Black Lives Matter Virtual Listening Circle” for students 11 a.m.-noon July 1.
The Zoom session will be led by Dr. Quiana Golphi and Dr. Dawn Moeller, who are faculty members in the Cal U Counseling Center.
The session will be limited to 10 students who may register by emailing Moeller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Topics will include recent instances of racial inequality, and each student will have a chance to speak, or “pass” and simply listen, in a respectful way, Moeller said.
“With summer and social distancing protocols, our students are somewhat isolated these days, and we want to be sure everyone has had a chance to talk about these issues with their peers,” she said. “It’s not meant to be a mental health support group, but rather more of a conversation starter. We want to provide a safe, respectful space for students to process or express themselves.
“The Counseling Center staff is here and available and concerned about our students’ well being.”
