Diversity subject of student-led discussion series

Feb. 16, 2010

KALAMAZOO--A student-led discussion series called the Real Talk Diversity Series will kick off at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, in the Trimpe Building's Multicultural Center.

The first program in the new monthly series is titled "Campus ISMS" and will feature students as well as faculty members discussing student attitudes about racism, sexism, homophobism and classism. Audience members will be able to participate in the discussion, and refreshments will be served.

The Real Talk Diversity Series is geared toward raising awareness, eliminating false ideologies, and stimulating dialogue on diversity and inclusion among WMU students.

The group of students that organized the discussion series invites other students at the University to help plan future events by participating in the group's weekly meetings at 10 a.m. Thursdays in the Multicultural Center.
