What is code-switching? And how does it impact belonging?

Join us for an open lecture with author, entrepreneur, and public speaker George Paasewe on his book "How Black College Students Learn Code Switching." George helps institutions increase their attraction, retention, and graduation rates of students of color through education on the adverse effects of code-switching and how it impacts belonging. George shares best practices to help eliminate the unconscious exclusion and marginalization of students of color while encouraging and supporting students to show up as their authentic selves. He also illustrates how students of color are experiencing higher levels of student burnout as they code-switch to navigate professional and social spaces where they are underrepresented.

All are welcome to attend the lecture. The first 15 people to register will receive a free copy of “How Black College Students Learn Code-Switching”. Register now.

This program/lecture is partially funded/sponsored by the Visiting Professor Program which is funded by a grant to the Office of the Provost from the State of Michigan's King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.
