Welcome back! The Multicultural Center loved the turnout at Fall Welcome Week events. The cultural receptions and open houses at the Atlanta and Clarkston campuses were all an inspiring launch for this semester’s work.

This fall brings three new series in addition to old favorites like Pop Talks, Intersections of Identity, and Community Connections, Introducing Rep’ Your City, Guerrilla Warfare, and Clip Art!

These fresh programs will invite you to explore various perspectives, gain new insights on various ideologies and theories, and will increase your level of insightful discussion. Many of these discussion techniques can be applied in academic courses and will fuel observation of academic material from various angles.
Rep’ Your City highlights cultural differences between seemingly-similar cultures by exploring geographic locations around the United States. For example, the first edition of this program will feature a panel of students from the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. (There is still time to join this student panel, by the way.
Guerrilla Warfare takes its name from historical military context, but here the term is used symbolically. This program aims to “arm” culturally oppressed groups with “tactics” to overcome hostility, build inclusive community with other groups, and maneuver successfully in a hectic social world.
Finally, new series “Clip Art”: Film Through the Over-Analyzer’s Perspective is an opportunity to watch clips from film and TV shows that highlight social issues, and discuss these clips together. Themes covered this semester include chronic pain, eating disorders, and mental illness, just to name a few!
The Multicultural Center cannot wait to unveil these new programs, and is excited to continue the old favorites. See you soon!
