Upcoming Programs

As of March 16th, 2020, in an effort to ensure the public health and safety of our campus community, all staff is now working remotely and our physical office is now closed.  Our team is currently shifting towards supporting our campus operations virtually, and we remain diligent and committed to serving you and supporting you during this time.  If you have any questions about preexisting or future programming, or if there is anything you need, please use our staff directory and email us.  We would love to hear from you. We look forward to resuming campus operations as soon as we have clearance to do so.

White people and people of color each have work to do separately and together. Caucuses provide spaces for people to work within their own racial/ethnic groups. For white people, a caucus provides time and space to work explicitly and intentionally on understanding white culture and white privilege and to increase one’s critical analysis around these concepts. A white caucus also puts the onus on white people to teach each other about these ideas, rather than constantly relying on people of color to teach them. For people of color, a caucus is a place to work with their peers on their experiences of internalized racism, for healing and to work on liberation. Statement copied from www.racialequity.org
