Theresa Conley Ph.D, Discussing Difficult Topics - In and Out of the Classroom
Classroom discussions on college campuses are meant to be a safe space for students to explore ideas and debate different opinions. Some topics are controversial and push students and faculty to think deeply about their own perspectives and assumptions across all disciplines, including business. Dr. Conley will explore the role of a liberal arts education, how faculty navigate these discussions, and how these ideas can add a fresh perspective to your interactions.
