Race and Ethnicity in America: Celebration, Struggle, Opportunity
During the 2013-14 academic year, we will focus on celebrating the particular contributions and experiences of people from varied races and ethnicities. We expect that students, faculty, and staff will highlight the multiple ways that their varied disciplines and individual experiences have been enriched by diverse experiences and contributions.
At the same time, we will explore the ongoing struggle in the United States, including our region and our campus, toward equally welcoming people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. For instance, what do we mean when we use the word "community?" Who is typically included and who is excluded? How do we create a genuinely welcoming community?
Throughout the year, we will seek to respond to the challenges before us and identify new opportunities to celebrate our racial and ethnic diversity in ways that help us build more welcoming communities in our region and beyond.
