Presented three times per year (Fall, Winter and Spring quarters), the COD sub-committee strives to bring three renowned speakers to campus on a specific topic of diversity.
This interactive workshop explores aspects of human difference, prejudice, biases, and disparities of power in our society.
The University Diversity Committee launched a new speaker series during the 2015/2016 academic year to address a need that was not being met.
In order to explore diversity issues and promote a positive attitude toward diversity on campus, in 1993, Callifornia State University, San Bernardino established a standing University Diversity Committee (UDC) which reports to the university president. The UDC is composed of a cross section of university representatives, including key administrators appointed by the president, faculty members appointed by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate, students appointed by Associated Students, and university employees appointed by the Administrative Council.
This week’s event will be a student-led conversation with hosts, Marlo Brooks and Kameron Pyant. Panelists will include Dr. Rafik Mohamed (Dean of SBS), Kathryn Ervin (MFA, Professor of Theater Arts), Drs. Alexis Norris and Zachary Powell (both Assistant Professors in the Department of Criminal Justice), Anthony Roberson (Associate Director of Operations in the CSUSB Santos Manuel Student Center), Dr. Marc Robinson (Assistant Professor of History), and representatives of the Westside Action Group will also join the conversation. Like previous events in this series of campus conversations, this event will be recorded and posted at the CSUSB History Club YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClLJkNoG6YO3AHF5nbE5pMA
