Rise Above "-Isms"

When: Thursday, November 07, 2013 5:15 PM - Thursday, November 14, 2013 5:15 PM
Event Type(s): Diversity

The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) is sponsoring a weeklong series of events to engage the entire campus community in a transformative dialogue on the "-isms", their devastating effects, and how we can collectively move beyond them. The week from November 11 to 14, entitled "Rise Above '-isms'", will offer a number of educational opportunities for all members of the campus community. The programs will use various learning modalities and methods to actively challenge entrenched attitudes and facilitate authentic conversations on this sensitive issue. ODI hopes to stimulate students, staff, and faculty to consider our own biases and stereotypes, to explore their impact on our campus community and the world beyond, and to commit to fully embracing equity, diversity and inclusion.
