Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion

If You Really Knew Me...

Exploring Hidden Identities

"An identity would seem to be arrived at by the way in which the person faces and uses his experience." - James Baldwin

Some kinds of diversity are easy to see. Others are invisible, and sometimes surprising. Experiences and traits combine in each of us in countless ways, forming identities that often contradict expectations. Join us for a year-long series of discussions about the complexities of who we are as individuals and as a campus community.
