In class, you were asked to write about your reaction to the recent Presidential election results. Then, you removed identifying information from your paper and shared it with your peers to receive anonymous commentary. For this writing assignment, you will be writing about your experience participating in this class activity. Begin by examining the full departmental Mission Statement on the URI Psychology Department web site. Pay particular attention to the following portion of this statement: “In the accomplishment of this mission we… Value the fundamental rights, dignity, and worth of all people, while achieving our goal to create a climate of understanding and respect among diverse individuals, Respect cultural, individual, and role differences, due to age, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status, Commit to fostering and integrating multiculturalism at both a didactic and personal level, and Promote conflict resolution in a just and responsible fashion that avoids or minimizes harm while respecting the rights of all individuals.” How do undergraduate students benefit from becoming more aware of issues of diversity and multiculturalism? Will this be helpful as you graduate and enter a multiculturally diverse workplace? Explain your viewpoint. Next, describe at least three statements or decisions made by the current US President. Are these statements or decisions consistent with our department mission statement? Please explain your answer. Finally, do you think that this writing assignment should be used next semester? What can we do to improve this assignment? Your paper should be at least 2 pages in length with 12 point Times New Roman font and 1 inch margins. Your grade will be based on whether you follow instructions rather than the individual opinions expressed in your writing.
