Each presentation will begin the 4th Thursday of each month during the College Hour from 12:20-1:30 in Kreider Hall, SR138. This lecture series will primarily be based on local community scholars’ presentations. A call for people in all disciplines to participate in the lecture series was made for interested scholars who have something to contribute, and the response was heartwarming. Cultural diversity in a college environment is more than giving lip service to respect, honor, tolerance, and elimination of prejudice. And it is more than anyone’s ethnicity, race, social class, sexuality, or disability. Cultural Diversity is a living, breathing asset to any campus and its value cannot be adequately expressed by the open market. This new venture will follow the road to social change with in-depth analyses of how it is that we have survived, and what we need to endure.
