Let's Talk - Drop-In consultations from Student Counseling Services

Thursday, September 6, 2018

Let’s Talk provides drop-in consultations at locations around campus. Counselors listen to specific problems (such as stress, relationships and academic performance), explore solutions, and suggest resources. It’s free, no appointment needed, and open to all students. This is a great starting point for students if they’d like to talk with someone, but aren’t ready for something more consistent.

Implicit Bias in Search and Selection Processes Workshops

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Departments across the University of Minnesota regularly participate in searches and selection processes. The university is committed to increasing diversity among its staff, faculty, and students, and this includes hiring and selecting people of color, people who identify as women, people with disabilities, and veterans in areas where they are underrepresented. The presence of implicit bias in search and selection processes can inhibit this goal.
