Because How We Decide Matters:
Making Decisions More Inclusive

Everyone wants to make the best decisions possible, but all too often, key stakeholders are left out of important conversations and the decisions that follow. How can we make decisions that are more inclusive? Where are more diverse perspectives most needed? And what would count as real progress?

The Biggio Center will be hosting Dr. Therese Huston of Seattle University for a highly interactive discussion about inclusive decision-making and communication in higher education.

Join us on Wednesday, March 29, 2017, at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center Ballroom A from 12-1:30 p.m. for a “world cafe style lunch.”

Be the Dot. Be the Difference

We at Auburn University are working together to stop sexual violence on our campus. The WE.auburn initiative is part of a nationwide program called the Green Dot Bystander Intervention Program. The Green Dot focuses on the actions of the bystander, the third party in any circumstance. By mobilizing the bystander to take action and intervene in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation, it is possible to change and even prevent the outcome of a violent situation. We call these instances “green dots.” WE are changing the culture at Auburn University, one green dot at a time.

For more information about the program click here: Green Dot.
