Co-hosted by the Thompson Center for Learning and Teaching and the Office of Engaged Learning, this event will feature Dr. Terrell Strayhorn, an expert in cultivating a sense of belonging. First, Dr. Strayhorn will discuss what a sense of belonging means for various stakeholders and how community-engaged teaching and research can help develop these different types of belonging. Then, Dr. Strayhorn will facilitate a Q&A session with the audience. Finally, Dr. Strayhorn will host a series of ‘fireside chats’ with individuals who are involved in community-engaged work within Flint. We are excited to host UM-Flint faculty and staff, as well as Flint community leaders, at this event and encourage everyone to attend.
