The morning sessions will: look at defining power and privilege, how this plays out on our campus, and challenging climate to prevent workplace sexual harassment.

The afternoon sessions provide an opportunity to engage in dialogue about creating a "culture of care" on our campus. Afternoon sessions will: define "culture of care", explore ways to create and improve climate to better support survivors, examine how culture of care has been implemented in a MSU department, and conclude with an expert panel discussion.
