Have you ever had a question about race but were too scared to ask or didn’t know how to ask? How do you know racism when you see it? How do you experience racism? How do you think racism has affected your life? How do you cope with the effects? Do you think you are responsible, in any way, for eliminating racism? 

Ithaca College students are invited to come together in a safe environment to share feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a sustained, confidential, frank dialogue around issues of race and racism. The Diversity Awareness Committee will initiate one Student Talking Circle facilitated by professionals from the Multicultural Resource Center. Each Talking Circle will be made up of 20 racially and ethnically diverse people who will meet once a week for five consecutive sessions to self-reflect, share experiences, and learn from others’ perspectives and attitudes.
