Check out OML's podcast, Word on the Street, where Kaylyn and Parisa (two of our student assistants) talk about contemporary social issues and other trending topics!
OML’s Difficult Dialogue series is intended to bring various unique perspectives from across campus to engage in important political and controversial issues. The goal of this series is to freely discuss issues that impact the SCU, local, and global community. We strive to create a safer space in which communal learning can occur.
Perspectives is a committee of students, staff and faculty who facilitate diversity workshops that aim to help our students shift their perspectives, gain diverse knowledge, and build multicultural skills. Interested in joining the committee? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or Request a Workshop.
