"One Better World"

Saturday, March 1, 2008
10:00am - 4:00pm

Privilege. Identity. Social Justice. The journey begins with you.

Come learn how your identities influence all you do and how you can use this knowledge to become agents of change on campus and in our world.

The Multicultural Summit is a day-long, interactive forum for students to explore aspects of diversity and multiculturalism. At the summit, students will have the opportunity to increase their awareness of issues of inclusion and to develop action plans that will assist them in being agents of change on campus.

Registration is FREE and open to all Suffolk students. Only 40 students can participate, so apply today!

Applications must be received in the Office of Diversity Services by 4:00pm on Monday, February 25, 2008.
