We would like to invite you and the members of your organizations, both in the Honors College and not, to join us in this event. We will be showing a video and presentation intended to help make students more aware of the ways we show respect (including accounting for cultural and traditional differences in how respect is shown), learn how to participate in respectful discourse and effective discussion, and understand how to deal with instances of disrespect. The presentation will be followed by discussion on these topics. We hope that this is an event that your organizations would like to be a part of.
