Strengthening Our Safety Net for Students

In this interactive session, students, faculty, staff, and alumni who were first-generation college students will discuss the challenges they faced and how their socio-economic status limited their ability to fully participate in campus life. Then, based on the issues identified, attendees will discuss ways to both identify and promote existing services, and create new resources to help fill the gaps.

The Power of Privilege: An Interactive Diversity Workshop

How societies manage differences (of race-ethnicity, gender and sexuality, age, class, ability, and so forth) lead to varied systems of privilege or oppression. Learn more about these concepts, connect their significance to your own life and experiences, and expand your awareness of other perspectives on these issues.
