Dr. Michael Fowlin

Actor and diversity trainer Dr. Michael Fowlin will present a performance/lecture titled “You Don’t Know Me Until You Know Me” at SUNY Oneonta on Thursday, April 25. The program, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in Lecture Hall 3 of the Instructional Resource Center.

Fowlin has been acting since age 11. In addition to his work on the stage, he has an undergraduate degree in psychology from Evangel University in Springfield, Mo., and a doctorate in clinical psychology from Rutgers University. He has conducted peer mediation sessions, diversity trainings, gender equity workshops and violence prevention seminars across the United States. His programs combine his professional acting talents and his psychological training, with the mission of creating an atmosphere of worldwide inclusion—not just tolerance—toward all people.

This event is part of “Through Each of Our Voices: Narratives on Diversity, Inclusion and Community,” a yearlong series of activities supported by an Explorations in Diversity and Academic Excellence grant from the State University of New York’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
