Hillsborough Community College Holds ‘Courageous Conversation’ on Immigration
Immigration: Who’s In and Who’s Out is the topic for the next event in the Courageous Conversation series.
PLANT CITY – Hillsborough Community College’s Office of Diversity and Equity will hold its Courageous Conversations Speaker Series on Wednesday (Sept. 21).
Courageous Conversations is a collaborative speaker series that examines current events and policies in our nation that directly impact our community.
Sponsored by the HCC diversity council, Wednesday’s event will examine immigration. Questions will be posed to stimulate candid and respectful conversation among the students, faculty and staff in attendance. The ten- to fifteen-minute conversations per topic will be moderated and may include border security, legal status of immigrants, amnesty, deportation and accessibility of certain rights to undocumented residents of the United States. The anticipated outcome is a better understanding of immigration issues and practice in having respectful conversations around controversial topics.
The event, Immigration: Who’s In and Who’s Out, will be from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on the HCC Plant City Campus, Trinkle Building, 1206 N Park Road. The moderator will be Dr. Roy Kaplan, Consultant to HCC Diversity Council, USF adjunct professor, and past executive director of the National Conference of Christians and Jews for Tampa Bay.
Hillsborough Community College serves more than 46,000 students annually on five campuses and three centers throughout Hillsborough County. HCC is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
