Minorities in Graduate School Discussion - Hosted By Student National Medical Association

We invite everyone to join the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) Stanford Chapter in a discussion on the experience of minority students in graduate school. Students from various graduate programs at Stanford will be sharing stories about their experience and facilitating a dialogue on how recent political events might impact life as a minority moving forward. This will be an open discussion and we encourage people from all different backgrounds to attend and learn during this event.

Courageous Conversations in the Classroom

Many instructors report worrying about and/or avoiding conversations about identity, politics, or other potentially sensitive topics in the classroom. In this seminar, we’ll discuss strategies to create spaces where both students and instructors can meaningfully engage, respectfully disagree, and connect course content to the real world and their lived experience in a constructive way.
