We would like to invite the campus community to our Welcome Back Gathering in the AIC, University Union 150, on Monday (Feb. 1) from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is a popular event for multicultural students, faculty, and our friends and allies campus-wide. As some of you may know, UWGB is beginning to explore an expanded understanding of diversity toward more fully integrating diversity, inclusion, and equity initiatives into the fabric of campus life. To that end, it is vital to make every effort to meet new people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives and to challenge ourselves to step out of our comfort zone.
The American Intercultural Center (AIC) shares the space with the Office of Student Life (OSL). The purpose of the event is to network with students, share a light meal together and informally visit with one another. The environment is safe, informal, and comfortable. The students call it a “home away from home”. The AIC hosts this event every semester, but the hope is that the connections made here will last throughout the semester and that we can begin to create new circles of support for students campuswide. We will take a few minutes to introduce the staff of the AIC and the Office of Student Life, as well as introduce the leaders of several key student organizations. If you are available anytime between 11:30-1:00 on Monday, February 1st stop in and visit with our students! We look forward to seeing you and working together to support student success!
