The Hanson Center currently facilitates two reading groups:

  • Inclusive STEM Reading Group: This book discussion group supports faculty interested in incorporating inclusive pedagogies and expanding their awareness and practices to enhance inclusive excellence.
  • Lafayette Allies for Gender Equity Reading (LAGE) Group: A learning community for male and non-binary members of the faculty, seeking to build capacity as allies and advocates for gender equity. The group has varied its membership from year to year since it first met in the fall of 2017, focusing on including new individuals who had not previously attended. A given year’s membership of 7-to-9 new attendees meets about once a month at lunchtime to discuss readings and explore allyship. Please email Mike Butler or Chris Ruebeck by September 14 if interested in this year’s instance, or keep it in mind for a future year.
