The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives, including how we show up in the classroom. In order to acknowledge and hold space for the difficulties of the past year, we will facilitate guided reflection and discussion to identify practices that support the PSU community post pandemic with special attention to respecting and celebrating people in all bodies. We will also share strategies and campus resources to support creating a welcoming and inclusive learning environment.
