Other Helpful Resources

(Un)Common Grounds:

Each semester, Multicultural Affairs facilitates a monthly dialogue program designed to invite challenging and transformative conversation on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexuality and disability. This space is an opportunity for participants to explore their own cultural identity, understand the experiences of others, critically examine social systems and actively work towards a more just world. Conversations are moderated by faculty, staff and community leaders that are able to bring unique perspectives to each discussion.
