Wednesday Lunch Hour - The University of Rochester's One Community Program

Wednesday, March 9, 2016
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

A recipient of a 2016 Presidential Diversity Award, the University’s One Community Program engages undergraduates in a facilitated discussion at Orientation that explores the way the University of Rochester community is shaped by all of our intersecting identities.  Learn more about the One Community program, which is designed to provide first year students with an opportunity to spend time thinking carefully about their own identities, hear narratives of the experiences of others, and provide them with tools to address situations that inevitably arise from difficult topics such as race, class, ability, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers. 

Presented by Jessica Guzmán-Rea ‘10W EDD, Director of the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center at the University of Rochester.

A lunch of pizza and salad will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program starts promptly at noon.
