Microaggressions and Marginality:
Manifestation, Dynamics, and Impact
Dr. Sue’s dynamic and engaging presentation reflects his most recent research on how everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, have a powerful impact upon the psychological well-being of marginalized groups and affect their standard of living by creating inequities in education, employment, and health care. The presentation will focus specifically on microaggressions in higher education, and will be followed by a question and answer period. The annual joint reception of the Senior Faculty Mentor and the Forum on Black Affairs will follow this event to welcome new and returning faculty of color and African American faculty and staff.
