Diversity Dialogues

To engage in civil discourse:

  • Be ready to listen for understanding.
  • Think about ways to solve problems together.
  • Be accountable for what you say and do.
  • Be open and think critically about what you hear.
  • Acknowledge communities strengths.
  • Find ways to create positive change.

Diversity Dialogues Reimagined
Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 6 p.m.
Altgeld Auditorium 

Black Student Leadership and TKE invite you to a co-hosted Diversity Dialogue led by students for students. Now is the time to take action against occurrences that marginalize, stereotype, generalize or oppress.

Why is this Important?

On April 15, 2017, TKE and Black student leaders met with administrators from the offices of Academic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ADEI) and Student Affairs to discuss a racially-biased incident that occurred on April 8, 2017 at an event off-campus in front of the TKE fraternity house. We discussed how this incident caused harm in our communities and opposes our core values of celebrating diversity, promoting equity, and fostering inclusion. We also discussed the impact these types of incidents have on our entire NIU community.

We realize there is a lack of understanding amongst students at NIU and it is important that we break down these barriers by bringing students together to have a larger conversation about cultural differences and cultural values.

Everyone always says the youth are the future, we say let's be the present. Please support this program by sharing this information and attending this dialogue.

Food will be provided.
