Values Day: Call for Workshop Proposals — Deadline Aug. 12

REMINDER: The deadline for Values Day Workshop Proposals is next Monday, Aug. 12.

The Values Planning Committee invites your voice to be heard on Stetson University’s Values Day!

Values Day 2019 is taking place on Tuesday, Sept. 24, and this year’s theme is “Activism Through the Arts.” The schedule includes 75- or 150-minute workshop sessions taught by Stetson’s own faculty, staff, students and community members.

Build a workshop that is engaging, informative and academically challenging! Collaborative workshops are especially encouraged.

  • Teach your best class.
  • Facilitate dialogue around hot topics facing our local and global community.
  • Explore a topic that falls outside the boundaries of ordinary curricula.
  • Facilitate a student-led presentation.

Workshops should engage the Stetson community in a hands-on exploration in one of the following four tracks:

Activism Boot Camp

Workshops will explore a variety of activities essential to the practice of everyday activism. These sessions will emphasize skills training and provide the fundamentals necessary to kick-start activist practices in our daily lives.

Owning Our Narratives

Workshops will provide tools for reflecting on and refining our narratives; and addressing themes such as social responsibility, self-exploration and self-awareness, cross-cultural competencies and/or the intersectionality of identities.

Coalition-Building

Workshops will offer strategies for organizing and motivating diverse groups of people with a common cause. Topics may range from grassroots movements to the art of leveraging corporate connections for social change.

Mind, Body, Spirit and Activism

Workshops will focus on balancing our personal well-being with our commitment to others through activism. Sessions should provide techniques and practices for self-awareness, reflection, self-care and/or contemplation.
