  • Difficult Conversations - Faculty Version

    Disagreements and debates happen all the time. Sometimes, we find ourselves shaken or angry during a conversation when we didn't expect it. Or, we find ourselves dreading, procrastinating and avoiding a conversation we know we need to have. Mark Patterson, W&M Ombudsperson, and Peter Vishton, Arts & Sciences Graduate Ombudsperson, will share strategies geared toward faculty to turn difficult conversations into productive, transformational events. Join us on March 21, 12-1pm in the Ford Classroom in Swem Library. Refreshments provided. RSVP by March 20 at 11:30am at
