Networking with Faculty

Oftentimes students are reluctant to talk to and interact with faculty due to various reasons such as being intimidated by their education, experience and/or power. The purpose of this event is to provide a safe and welcoming space for students to interact with faculty (specifically faculty of color) and allow them to practice their networking skills and build connections. We want to alleviate their social anxiety and provide them with the opportunity to interact with individuals who share the same social identities as them and see the representation within the field. We hope to encourage students to

- Build at least one faculty connection

- Feel confident in networking spaces

- Practice their “elevator pitch”
