Create your future. Shape your world.
Throughout the academic year, the Office of Multicultural Affairs collaborates with various student organizations and departments around the issues of diversity and social justice. More than simply cultural exhibitions, these events are designed to bring those at the edges of our society and to weave a new cloth of our shared and different experiences. These opportunities challenge us to learn new ways of communicating and sharing.
Each year, the office sponsors workshops and training sessions for students interested in activism and supporting cultural issues. In 2009 and 2010, the College hosted "Activism Done Right: Skills for Effective Organizing," a workshop by Daniel Hunter, co-director of Training for Change and a Training Elder. Daniel has led diversity, nonviolence and strategy training for a wide range of activists and social change groups throughout the world. He will be returning to campus in the fall of 2011.
Also planned for the 2011-12 academic year is a visit from Earlham alumna Shuruq Harb '01, a visual artist and writer based in Ramallah, Palestine. She will return to campus on November 16, 2011 and give her presentation, "Politics of Collaboration."
