Based on interviews with university faculty, “Ready to Vote?” enacts a merit review committee meeting in which conflicts arise over unclear standards, inappropriate discussions, and microaggressions that stem from the very different identities at play. This interactive theater, that includes both professional actors and USD administrators, will give participants an opportunity to examine behaviors and motivations that are typically displayed during rank, tenure and merit discussions utilizing a group problem-solving mode. These conversations promise to highlight best practices for fostering a more inclusive academic climate for all faculty.

Lunch will be provided so please RSVP by Wednesday, October 14, 2015
