Many students are taking to various social media platforms to express areas of concern as they speak up to encourage improvements in the world around them. The College’s administration intends to match this motivation for change, with departments such as the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (OIDEI) working to come up with solutions for these social concerns.
The College held a dialogue around allyship and racial injustice on June 21 with a panel via Zoom. The discussion was moderated by the interim director of intercultural engagement and inclusion, Marvin Carter, and the panel included seven different staff and faculty members.
In the aftermath of the student counter-protest against the presence of conservative religious group Bible Believers in Alumni Grove on Thursday, April 12, the College held the “Critical Conversations: Spring Edition” forum in the Education Building Room 115 to allow students to discuss their concerns about the day’s events.
