Transformation Today is a series of workshops that centralizes some of the workshops provided across campus to promote cultural humility. Open to all students, staff, and faculty across LMU, this workshop series aims to bring together the community to further develop a coalition of care centralized around cultural humility and cura personalis. Although change often occurs slowly at a systemic level when working towards justice, let us make a Transformation beginning Today.
This upcoming fall, Transformation Today will consist of three workshops created and facilitated by our very own LMU community members. They are the following:
