Joanne Deck will discuss how anyone changing environments, such as to a new school, workplace, or region, commonly experiences culture shock. Through example and self-reflection, participants will recognize when culture shock occurs and understand its four stages. They’ll explore effective methods for managing the discomfort and ultimately thriving in the new environment. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their own experiences with culture change and/or look at how they could support a new staff member or student acclimate successfully. Discussion will take place in the Campus Center Conference Room.
