Robert Penn Warren Center offers ‘Liberating Structures’ workshop series

Join the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities for the Liberating Structures workshop series. Liberating Structures is a methodology grounded in the idea that the strategies commonly used to organize collaborative discussion often end up stifling creativity and a sense of belonging.

Mending and Transforming (Faculty, Grad Students)
