Community Discussion on Bears Ears National Monument

Thursday January 26th, 2017
Marriott Library | Gould Auditorium 
4:00-6:00pm

Join Jeff McCarthy, Director of Environmental Humanities Graduate Program and Dave Derezotes, Director of the Peace & Conflict Studies Program for a community discussion about the Bears Ears National Monument.

In cooperation with the College of Humanities and the School of Social Work, we will bring together opponents and supporters of Utah’s new 1.35 million acre national monument. This dialogue is a chance to find common ground on a divisive issue. Overall, we hope to demonstrate the possibility of respectful disagreement, and to model mutual recognition while allowing for difference.

The event will be held in the Gould Auditorium of the Marriott Library, 4-6pm, Thursday January 26.

All are welcome!

Facilitation for the event is provided by the Transforming Classrooms into Inclusive Communities (TCIC) Project, funded by the University Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE), and by the  Peace & Conflict studies (PCS) program, also in the College of Humanities.
