- Dr. Fleming,
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed the class this afternoon. You could not have done a better job keeping everything interesting and light.
- I enjoyed discussing what I valued about my group and hearing classmates do the same
- I liked the stand up/sit down activity – it was good to see how people can be identified in groups beyond race or gender.
- The up/downs portion was initially able to get everyone involved and created a comfortable setting.
- Up/downs and pair time – I learned things about people that I never would have otherwise known, and will be more aware of the diversity of experience in the future.
- I enjoyed pairs – opening up to talk about our differences – getting to know your classmates.
- Impact- How to respond appropriately respond to situations involving discrimination.
- It showed me just how diverse our class is and that people identify themselves in ways you may not realize.
- I can learn to speak only uplifting things because I never know where people have come from.
- Learned to accept differences.
- It helps to remind me how different peoples’ perspectives can be from my own which I hope will help me be more empathetic in the future.
- I learned we have a very diverse group of students at MUSC who all deserve respect.
- To own up to my differences and realize that I too am special.
- I had some preconceived notions about people that were dispelled.
- My expectations on how fun/interesting the workshop would be were greatly surpassed.
- Had done it before but enjoyed this session more.
- I was expecting a boring, dry lecture. Thank you for engaging us and keeping us involved.
- I learned there were other non-religious students here who share my views.
- Thank you so much for the workshop this morning! I know the three of you put a lot of work into it, and I found it really helpful. I needed to run out to get back to the office, but I am definitely interested in signing up for the Diversity Training workshop on October 30th.
