International Day of Peace
Each year, Peace Day is globally celebrated on September 21. The Intercultural Center annually hosts an event around this date to bring students together in the spirit of peace to strengthen the ideals of unity, equality, compassion and harmony. From music performances to art workshops, this fun-filled event brings students together to honor the efforts of those currently working hard to end conflict and promote peace.
The Intercultural Center is proud to support a new peer-led initiative, The Brotherhood. While open to any member of the campus community, The Brotherhood seeks to serve underrepresented male students of color, recognizing the unique challenges they face throughout their college journey. In partnership with male faculty and staff, participants co-facilitate interactive activities and meaningful discussions addressing topics including but not limited to:
- Academic Performance
- Career Readiness
- Health and Wellness
- Healthy Relationships
- Exploring their multifaceted identities
The Intercultural Center hosts the Intercultural Community Living Learning Community for students interested in exploring and cultivating their social identities while living on campus.
