The University of Florida Office of the Provost and the Bob Graham Center for Public Service will host the 2017 Provost Symposium on January 26-27 at Emerson Alumni Hall. The program will focus on implicit bias and understanding the unconscious roots of thoughts and feelings. Kate Ratliff, assistant professor in UF’s Department of Psychology and Executive Director of the Harvard University’s Project Implicit, will open the two-day conference with a presentation on hidden biases and will present data collected from an “automatic associations” assessment to be administered in advance of the symposium. New York Times Op-Ed columnist Charles Blow will offer a keynote address on day two of the conference. Blow’s NYT columns focus on politics, public opinion and social justice.
***PLEASE NOTE: THIS CONFERENCE IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND IS INTENDED FOR UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA FACULTY AND STAFF ONLY.
