The Steans Center supports DePaul’s mission by fostering faculty-community partnerships in the pursuit of transformative student learning and a more just society. This year, the center is offering an exciting five-part Steans Center workshop series and a certificate program to both new and more experienced practitioners. The workshops may be taken as stand-alone components or as a series.

The 2018-19 series will continue on Oct. 11 and 12 with Teaching in Chicago: Negotiating Identity in the Classroom and Community. In these sessions, participants will: 
  • Reflect on how identity and personal bias play a role in faculty teaching and student learning in the classroom and in the community--with experienced community partners, faculty members, staff, and students
  • Develop and share knowledge and skills for facilitating critical in-class dialogue and reflection
  • Discuss how to prepare students for navigating communities, address safety concerns, and address relevant requirements of the University
