Interactive Theater

Interactive Theater is a collaborative educational programming tool that uses live theater and audience participation to explore solutions to challenges in interpersonal interactions. Performers present scenarios on a range of diversity issues. Through facilitated dialogue the audience participants work through their own perspectives, emotions and assumptions to gain a greater awareness of issues that can lead to conflict or result in allegations or complaints of discrimination.

This will be "snapshot" of a program tailored to either a student only and/or student services professional staff audience. Collaborators on the subject content are: Lisa Walker, Multicultural Student Development; Lisa McRipley, Office of Student Development; Allan Creigton, University Health Services; Alex Ghenis, Disabled Student Union; and Maria Lucero Padilla, Campus Climate and Compliance.
