As a nation of immigrants, the U.S. is one of the most diverse societies in the world. Yet, history and modern times are rife with examples of cultural misunderstandings that stand in the way of a truly integrated society. The 28th Joseph T. Taylor Symposium explores ways in which language can overcome moments of difficulty, facilitating the transition of new Americans, and bringing harmony to our remarkable mosaic of cultural traditions and experiences. The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium is offered in celebration of all Dr. Taylor stood for during his lifetime and stands as a lasting legacy to his vision and life work.

Despite good grades, degrees, promotions, awards and other tangible evidence of abilities, many highly capable people secretly believe they're not as intelligent and capable as others 'think' they are. Even faculty who don't personally identify with this feeling need to understand the dynamics of impostor feelings as well as the individual and institutional costs. Join us for an interactive program on impostor syndrome led by Dr. Valerie Young, followed by a ‘Meet the Imposters’ workshop.  Lunch will be provided.
