EAU CLAIRE — Douglas Stevens, director of the College of Arts and Sciences Continuing Education office at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, has received a Faculty Reading Seminar grant from the UW System Institute on Race and Ethnicity.
Stevens' seminar will focus on the book "Mong Education at the Crossroads," written by Paoze Thao.
Seminar participants include David Lund, interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of mathematics; Margaret Dwyer, interim associate vice chancellor for Academic Affairs; Bernard Duyfhuizen, interim associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of English; Katherine Rhoades, assistant professor of Foundations of Education; La Vone Sneen, program assistant; Sharon Hildebrand, precollegiate programs director; Jean Peterson, outreach specialist; and Bridget Boiteau, student.
Seminar organizers say the interdisciplinary composition and diversity of the participants, the varying political orientations of the readings, and the rigorous, yet collegial, quality of the discussions mark the seminars, which focus on books with racial/ethnic themes. The participants foster cross-campus and cross-disciplinary exchanges and stimulate curricular innovations.
