March 13-17: University of Diversity Week Events

The University of San Diego’s University of Diversity Week recognition is happening March 13-17 with the theme of “Seeing our Similarities, Embracing our Differences,” this year.

The week commenced with an ARTivism event March 13 on the Maher Lawn area.

Tuesday’s events are scheduled to open with a discussion called, “Indigenizing USD,” at 12:30 p.m. in Maher Hall, Room 253.

Tonight, starting with a photo gallery viewing at 6:15 p.m., the newest My Story event consists of members of the USD campus community discussing their participation in the second annual “What I Be Project.” The talk is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Hahn University Center’s Forum C. A video from last year's inaugural event is shown above.

Wednesday’s two events take place in the afternoon and evening. A First-Generation Alliance meet and greet event will be held from 4-6 p.m. in the Degheri Alumni Center’s courtyard space. Following that event is “Listen, Share, Learn: A Night of Reflection,” which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. in the third floor courtyard of the Student Life Pavilion.

Thursday’s events are Torero Program Board’s Out of the Box event from 12:30-2 p.m. in the SLP’s Plaza Mayor area and then the first event for USD’s March celebration of Womxn’s Herstory Month, Mujer Mariposa: Voices of Womxn on the Periphery Workshop.
