    As the U-M celebrates its bicentennial, it is important to consider the significant place of Asian Studies in its history.

  3. Language Interpretation in Social Work Practice »

    September 22, 2017 - 8:30am to 2:00pm

    This professional development workshop will help students and professional social workers learn and appreciate the role of language in social work practice. All social workers, monolingual and multilingual alike, perform the role of language interpreter (and/or translator) in practice. Ensuring diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in practice calls for methods, philosophies, and tools that can allow us to build relationships across class, gender, immigration status, sexuality, language and race. Interpretation- facilitating communication across lines that might otherwise divide communities is essential to working towards our commitment to DE&I. Participants will learn methods and strategies for interpretation with special attention to the potential for power imbalances that influence the way in which communication is mediated through an interpreter.

  8. DE&I Lunch: The Intersection of Transgender Health and Education for Diversity »

    July 10, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Due to the marginalization of transgender people, having basic health needs met is a barrier for those who identify as trans. Research proves that a major barrier lies within higher education because educators are not discussing trans topics, specifically around hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgeries, as well as ways to communicate with and address trans people. Because overall well-being and physical health needs are not being met, civic health/civic well-being and a trans person’s quality of life are directly connected. This presentation will explore techniques to be more inclusive in and out of the classroom, as well as ways to actively support trans people as they strive to address their basic health care needs.

    Presentation by Brendon Holloway, MSW Candidate
