About the Series – the Office of Multicultural Student Services invites the campus
community to attend “Conversations on Race” — a campus dialogue series that aims to address events, issues and trends surrounding race in our society. Discussions are scheduled twice each semester, students select the main topics, and OMSS seeks to collaborate
with faculty and student organizations to serve as panelists for each discussion.
