The College of Education is pleased to be joining forces with the Colleges of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences (ACES); Applied Health Sciences (AHS); Business; and Fine and Applied Arts to recognize and celebrate Inclusive Illinois Day on September 19th. As part of our celebration we would like to invite students in our college to share academic work related to the mission of the Inclusive Illinois initiative: “Inclusive Illinois, one campus, many voices, is the University’s commitment to cultivating a community at Illinois where everyone is welcomed, celebrated, and respected. Through education, engagement, and excellence, each voice creates the Inclusive Illinois Experience.”
There are two ways for you to share your work:
This week, UNITE will be having our first speaker meeting of the year TONIGHT at 7pm in room 259 of the English Building.
Our speaker meetings cover a variety of topics. Some of the topics we will be covering this semester include:
-undocumented students and how we as teachers can help
-LGBT students and their experiences in school
-the current teacher strike with Chicago Public Schools

While posting this event does not endorse this activity, this could be a good opportunity to learn some of the issues that our teachers in Chicago are dealing with.
