Submit a workshop proposal for Values Day

The Values Day Planning Committee invites you to develop a workshop for Values Day on September 26th, 2017.  

Workshops can address a variety of topics and should be connected to one of Stetson’s core values: Intellectual Development, Global Citizenship, and Personal Growth. Collaborative workshops are especially encouraged.

In recent years, workshops have addressed important societal and political issues, leadership and activism trainings, environmental concerns, creative projects and more.  To see workshop descriptions, visit

Values Day Speaker and Book

The 2017 Values Day speaker is Irshad Manji. She is the Founder and Director of the Moral Courage Project, which equips students to make values-based decisions. She has turned her journey as a Muslim feminist reformer and lesbian activist into teachings about professional leadership, informed by cutting-edge research that connects across the disciplines.  To learn more about Manji and her work, please visit her personal website and her project at NYU.

This year’s R.E.A.D. (Reflect Engage & Affirm Diversity) book, Allah, Liberty and Love (2011), is written by Irshad Manji.  Manji describes the book as an effort to “reconcile faith and freedom in a world seething with repressive dogmas.” One of the key teachings of Manji’s work and a universal theme in her book is “moral courage” or the willingness to question, speak up, and be a courageous global citizen in a world filled with inequities.  The R.E.A.D. will take place on Values Day from 12:30pm-1:45pm.

If you would like to receive a personal copy or copies of the book for a course you will be teaching in the Fall please complete this Form, so we can set aside the correct number of books.
