Race & Ethnicity

Race and Ethnicity programming utilizes an intersectional and integrative framework to design, implement, and evaluate programs that explore race and ethnicity related issues. Programming supports underrepresented students and affinity student organizations, including but not limited to womxn, men, and genderqueer/non-binary students from within and between African American, Chicanx/Latinx, Asian American, and Indigenous/Native American, LGBTQI communities. We develop diversity and social justice programs that explore the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, spirituality, and other diverse markers of identity, culture, and community.

How do we bring Race & Ethnicity into our programming?

Our Race and Ethnicity Program Coordinator is in charge of all race and ethnicity related programming. 

Our programs and events change from semester to semester, but here are a few examples of ongoing programs and their descriptions. Note: This list was last updated on 5/5/2020. Events are subject to change, so check our Events Page for more info.
