Campus Center, Conference Room B

PGA hours available
RSVP: staffdevelopment@deanza.edu by Tues, May 10th

Description:

In this modular workshop series, we will

  • discuss the model minority myth: How are students from the Southeast Asian (SEA), Filipino, and Pacific Islander communities overlooked when it comes to discussions about under representation in higher education?
  • watch videos with interviews from students, faculty, and staff that discuss the different challenges students from these communities face
  • learn a brief history of each population:  How do their immigration or refugee stories affect their perceptions of education?

Attend a short 50-minute "Fly By" workshop on one of our targeted subgroups, or
an All-Together training that includes all 4 videos followed by a lively discussion.
