Transcript: Perhaps you have attended the non-credit seminar at Maui College which reveals some of my multicultural experiences. Samir of the Kahduri Bedouin Tribe in the, Sinai Desert, was my Aide, Bodyguard, and “Ambassador” to rival tribes. With us is Abraham Ka’au of Maui, Hawaii who helped me organize the Hawaiian community and health givers, in efforts to stem the obesity and longevity crisis. The People and Faces that Define Diversity In my role as Gerontologist, Long Term Care Services Executive, and Health Education Trainer, I hired over 7000 employees to staff and serve over 20,000 residents and patients. The client population and staff represented the ethnic, racial, religious, and demographic tableau that is New York City. The combined Strengths, Abilities, Cultures/Ethnicities, Experiences, Genders, Religions, and Talents that each one of us brings to Lane Community College (including concepts of equal opportunity and affirmative action-the cornerstones of a diversity plan). Diversity at Lane CC is not only about age, gender, disability, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, and veteran status. It’s about socioeconomic status, family background, languages, academic preparedness, and learning styles. Inclusion is about creating a climate where we all feel valued and appreciated, where diverse groups are interacting internally and externally, in academic and administrative decisions. But “How do we do this?” Increase Faculty Diversity o Lacking ethnic diversity among faculty makes it difficult to present our students a quality of education. A mono-racial world is not one in which our students live. Increasing diversity of faculty does not decrease academic standards. o Diverse faculty with diverse teaching methods produces students who are more complex thinkers. o Faculty of color promotes students with diverse role models and promotes more effective mentoring to minority students. To be successful o Engage faculty in this discussion. o Provide faculty with current research on the benefits of diverse faculty. o Include faculty diversity in the strategic plan. o Include faculty diversity plans in request for additional faculty. o Reexamine faculty recruiting practices. o Check out practices at peer institutions. o Students must learn in an environment that empowers them to reach their full potential when aspiring to “Global Citizenship.” o Faculty must teach in an environment that supports their ability to participate in “Applied Research,” upgrades teaching skills, and be rewarded for effective instruction. o Staff must work in an environment that utilizes their skills and abilities, and allows them to develop new ones. o An inclusive environment is one that supports diverse faculty recruitment. Not all groups of students believe that they have equal access to information about : o Academic Programs, Support Services, or Mentoring. o Information flows create an inclusive environment. Welcoming orientations for new students.  Making resources more available for transfer, part time, evening, or weekend students, e.g. computer labs.  Supportive Student centered Activities o Establish Multicultural Day o Encourage reps of various religious and spiritual student organizations to hold regular panel discussions. o Promote peer to peer dialogues on issues like race, religion, sexual orientation. o Create physical spaces where groups or individuals can meet informally. o Recruit under represented students. o Establish donor fund for socio-economically disadvantaged students. o Convene focus groups to identify obstacles faced by 1st generation college students and recommend ways to remove those barriers.  WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES? o Status quo? o Implosion of social democracy? o Third World penury? o Return to the Ottoman Empire? o 1984? o African Style Kleptocracy? o English Public School System? We all have to WIN in educational outcomes. We can’t afford even one LOSER. ON-LINE & MOOC STYLE Job Titles of The Future Educational Continuum Disease Control and Prevention National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Physical Therapy Assistant Nursing Programs Ping Ling Tios, Head of Singapore’s Visiting Nurse Services.

Lane Community College is already a leading educational institution in creating an EQUITABLE AND FAIR environment in Oregon's educational mileu. We can't rest until we eliminate all exclusion and discriminatory behavior. FULL SPEED AHEAD! DIVERSION AND INCLUSION @ LANE COMMUNITY COLLEGE We need help, we urge you to ....

Transcript: Wisdom does not flow like water Plato’s Critique of Pederasty Pederasty Background Symposium Pederasty My Project Pausanias' Speech Pausanias' Speech Two Aphrodites Uranian Heavenly Pandemos Common Text Text Pictures Pictures "Here, Socrates, lie down alongside me, so that by my touching you, I too may enjoy the piece of wisdom that just occurred to you while you were in the porch. It is plain that you found it and have it, for otherwise you would not have come away beforehand." Agathon and Socrates “It would be a good thing, Agathon, if wisdom were the sort of thing that flows from the fuller of us into the emptier, just by our touching one another, as the water in wine cups flows through a wool thread from the fuller to the emptier. For if wisdom too is like that, then I set a high price on my being placed alongside you, for I believe I shall be filled from you with much fair wisdom. My own may turn out to be a sorry sort of wisdom, or disputable like a dream; but your own is brilliant and capable of much development, since it has flashed out so intensely from you while you are young; and yesterday it became conspicuous among more than thirty thousand Greek witnesses." "You are outrageous, Socrates," Agathon said. "A little later you and I will go to court about our wisdom, with Dionysus as judge, but now first attend to dinner." how water flows Principle at play When they do engage in a contest about love Timeline YEAR Alcibiades' Speech Socrates, he claims, is like “those silenuses that sit in the shops of herm sculptors, the ones that craftsman make holding reed pipes or flutes; and if they are split in two and opened up they show they have images of gods within.” (215b) Alcibiades' Speech You, in my opinion,' I said, 'have proved to be the only deserving lover of mine; and it seems to me that you hesitate to mention it to me. Now I am in this state: I believe it is very foolish not to gratify you in this or anything else of mine—my wealth or my friends—that you need; for nothing is more important to d me than that I become the best possible; and I believe that, as far as I am concerned, there is no one more competent than you to be a fellow helper to me in this. So I should be far more ashamed before men of good sense for not gratifying a man like you than I should be before the many and senseless for gratifying you.' Seduction Scene 'Really, my dear Alcibiades, you're no sucker if what you say about me is really true and there is some power in me e through which you could become better. You must see, you know, an impossible beauty in me, a beauty very different from the fairness of form in yourself. So if, in observing my beauty, you are trying to get a share in it and to exchange beauty for beauty, you are intending to get far the better deal. For you are trying to acquire the truth of beautiful things in exchange for the seeming and opinion of beautiful things; and you really have in mind to exchange "gold for bronze." But blessed one do consider better: Without your being aware of it—I may be nothing. Thought, you know, begins to have keen eyesight when the sight of the eyes starts to decline from its peak; and you are still far from that.' Conclusion conclusion If Socrates were to have sex with Alcibiades, he would perpetuate: 1) the idea that people can make each other wise. impact: prevent Alcibiades from realizing his ignorance about wisdom 2) Alcibiades belief that his physical attractiveness is the most important thing about him impact: the belief could harm Alcibiades as he begins to decline from his physical peak, when “Thought begins to have keen eyesight.” (219a) 3) Socrates would be no better than the sophists who cannot acknowledge the ways in which they are ignorant, and thus, risk self-deception. Advantages Advantages to my account: -Fits with the well-known picture of a Socrates who: 1) proclaims his own ignorance. 2) critiques the Sophists for i. both not acknowledging what they do not know ii. exchanging money for wisdom -Makes explicit the way Plato critiques the customs of his time -Throws into question a vision of Socrates as someone who consistently denies bodily urges -Makes clear that the container model is supposed to function in opposition to the image of pregnancy and birth. Accounts of “Plato’s Appropriation of Reproduction” run these two images together.
