As part of the AFFIRM NSF grant, we invite all interested faculty to participate in our interactive theater performed by interACT, a nationally renowned social justice performance troupe based out of California State University, Long Beach.

This interactive presentation will highlight some of the issues recorded in last year’s faculty campus climate survey. The goal of the performance is to “allow audience members a safe space to rehearse assertive communication strategies and inspire social and political change” within our campus and beyond.

Since its birth in 2000, the troupe has reached thousands of audience members through its “proactive” (highest level of audience involvement) shows. During performances audience members are literally invited on stage to become active participants, rather than passive observers. The shows have been proven effective in multiple quantitative, qualitative, and longitudinal published studies. They perform throughout the country on college campuses, community locations, and academic conferences.
