Next week, October 17th– 21st, 2016 is Cultural Awareness Week at Hilbert College. While our campus community is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion all year long, we are taking time next week to be even more purposeful in the conversations, engagements, celebrations, and opportunities we partake in as a campus community. Our theme this year is People, Power, Potential. As a community there is strength, power, and endless possibility in who we can become and what we can achieve when we share our stories, avail ourselves to be a part of each other’s stories, harness our collective power, and maximize the potential possibilities we have to make ourselves, campus, community, and world a place where we are thriving. As the African Proverb shares “Alone we go fast, together we go far.”
Whether there are individuals sharing their stories from studying abroad, guest speakers talking about the politics of the NBA and discrimination, faculty members encouraging us to examine our philosophy of forgiveness, this week was curated with the hope to honor, engage with, learn from, and grow with each member of the Hilbert Community. We hope you take a moment to attend as many of these free events as you are able.
If you have any questions about the week or will be in need of accommodations to best enjoy a particular event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
