Coffee and Conversations

Central to the Transformative Learning Theory is the need for open dialogue with others.  This is critical to a perspective transformation which "leads to a more fully developed frame of reference? one that is more (a) inclusive, (b) differentiating, (c) permeable, (d) critically reflective, and (e) integrative of experience" (Mezirow (1996) as cited in Taylor (2008).

Coffee and Conversations is designed to bring all freshmen multicultural students into the Office of Multicultural Affairs within the first semester of classes in order for students to learn about the resources the OMA provides as well as to connect with staff and begin the process of open dialogue.
