Cultural Theme Month Celebrations
Each year, Ithaca Colleges celebrates cultural diversity through our Cultural Theme Month celebrations. Through the collaborative efforts of Multicultural Affairs, departments such as the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, & Ethnicity and the Center for LGBT Education, Outreach, and Services, and student organizations like the African Latino Society, Asian American Alliance, IC Natives, and PODER, programs and events present various opportunities to learn, educate, experience, and appreciate different aspects of different cultures. Programs have included lectures, Identity discussion panels, film screenings, cultural arts presentations, and more.
Join us as we "FIND OUR PAST IN THE PRESENT!"
