Wednesday's Diversity Week Schedule of Events

Join us all week for events across campus celebrating diversity on campus.

Wednesday, March 20

11:00 am - 12:20 pm 
(Her)story of Women at Texas Tech: Christine Self, Ph.D. and Associate Archivist Lynn Whitfield 
Doak Hall Room 123

It may seem like an odd fact to point out today, but when Texas Tech University was established in 1923 as Texas Technological College, the idea of a coed higher learning institution was still relatively new. Join us in learning about women faculty, staff and students from past to present that have made significant contributions to research, service and teaching on our campus.

11:00 am - 1:00 pm 
Walk a Mile in Arabs Without Borders' Shoes 
Free Speech Area

The Walk a Mile in Our Shoes Campaign is meant to provide curious Texas Tech students with the opportunity to learn more about people from a certain background that they are unfamiliar with. As human beings, we may be quick to attach certain stereotypes to people based off of what we've heard and not what we've witnessed. Join us every day of the week to learn about a different group in an open and friendly environment.

11:00 am - 2:00 pm 
"Building Cultural Capital for Professional Development"- Students Only 
Mesa Room 
Hosted by CRC and the Career Center
