Students of Color Speakeasy: Special Edition
Date: 11:00am - 1:00pm PDT December 13, 2012 PST Location: Thayer
For the final speakeasy of the semester, OMA director, Tricia Brand, Associate Dean and Coordinator of Multicultural Admissions, Rasheid Light and an LC faculty member will be in attendance to field any ongoing concerns or questions that have been raised throughout past discussions. Within this culminating discussion, the focus will be on a few recurring themes that have prevailed throughout past speakeasies. In particular, issues of discrimination in the classroom and dealing with cases of ignorance or apathy on behalf of your professors or your peers, have been tagged as issues that would be beneficial to discuss with these faculty and staff members.
Remember, the Speakeasy is a place to air any thoughts or concerns you may have as an underrepresented student campus. The discussions are a way to build connections and seek allies within a safe space. Whether you’ve never been or have come to them all, we hope that you will join us in conversation and attend this final discussion!
Lunch will be provided! We hope you’ll take a break from studying to join us!
