Diversity in the Dorm

Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2011

One decision college students must make even before classes start is whether they will live in a racially or ethnically themed residence hall.  For example, Davidson College has international halls, UC-Santa Cruz has an indigenous peoples hall, Ujamaa at Stanford is an African-themed house.

In this week's Big Q case, Mo must decide whether to choose an ethnically themed living situation.  The Big Q project invites students to use the approaches of ethics to consider the important decisions in their own lives.
