Introducing the Religious Diversity Series of Events!

The Global Education Office and the PRISM Multicultural Center have co-produced a Religious Diversity Series to engage the college in civil conversations on faith traditions from around the world. COME, LEARN something, ASK something, and EXPAND your awareness and your UNDERSTANDING of diverse religious traditions.

Why I Wear Hijab, will kick off the series on Wednesday February 15th, from 12-1pm in the PRISM Multicultural Center of the Spina Administration Building (1- 108). Several Muslim women from Turkey and Iraq will speak about their religious and cultural tradition of wearing the headscarf referred to as hijab.

The Week of Remembrance and Compassion will mark the culmination of this series. Tibetan Buddhist Monks from the Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, NY will be in the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center Atrium creating a traditional Sand Painting surrounded by portraits of local Holocaust Survivors for Holocaust Remembrance week (Yom HaShoah) April 24- 28th. The Diversity Council, The Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Project, The Global Education and International Services Office, The Global Union International Student Association, and PRISM Multicultural Center are sponsoring the Week of Remembrance and Compassion.
