Difference, Power, And Responsibility

A Difference, Power, and Responsibility (DPR) course provides a framework within which students develop a critical consciousness of issues of difference and power in the United States in order to participate responsibly within a democratic society. General education credit courses with this designation fulfill the cultural literacy requirement of the Associate Arts Transfer (AAOT) degree beginning summer 2010. However, all programs and college degrees are enriched through the embedding of DPR in the curricula leading to fulfillment of the college’s strategic intent.

UP COMING EMPLOYEE DPR TRAININGS

Core Seminar

This six-part seminar is designed to explore how issues of difference and power are embedded in curricula, and how teaching strategies can engage or marginalize students. A primary element is the concept that, in order for our content and statrategies to change, we would change as well. Seminar sessions will engage and challenge personal perspectives and enable faculty and instructional support staff to construct new insights in their lives and teaching.
