Have you ever heard this phrase or found it offensive? How do you engage in a diverse community? What does diversity even mean?
Find out these answers when you attend Dr. Maura Cullen’s presentation "Taking the Adversity out of Diversity." Her award-winning session will inspire, educate and motivate you on how to embrace diversity and take meaningful action toward an inclusive community.
The workshop is offered twice to accommodate student schedules and facilitate 100% participation by first-year and transfer students. Students should attend either the 7:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m. presentation with their residence hall floor, as indicated below. If a resident is unable to come during their assigned session they are welcome to attend the other session time.
