‘Defamation: The Play’ visits campus Oct. 15

“Defamation: The Play,” a nationally acclaimed courtroom-drama production with a twist, is coming to UW-Green Bay and the University Union’s Christie Theatre. The twist is that the audience is the jury. The play addresses the intersection of socioeconomic status, race and religion. Curtain time is 5:30 (to 7:30) p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 15). The event is sponsored by the American Intercultural Center, the Diversity Task Force, Dean of Students, Residence Life and Good Times Programming. If you’re interested in learning more about the play, http://defamationtheplay.com/.
Please note: an announcement of this event in a previous edition of this newsletter misidentified the production as a film.

 

Reminder: Diversity Task Force seeks submissions for ‘Human Mosaic’

“The Campus Life Diversity Task Force is seeking information about diverse and inclusive programs, films, lectures, meals and other events that will be scheduled during the 2014-2015 academic year. The “Human Mosaic” booklet is being developed at this time but information on spring events can be submitted now too. Please e-mail information concerning the name of the event, date, time and location, an appropriate photo if you wish, and a paragraph or two that will inform attendees on what they can expect at the program or event to Stacie Christian at christis@uwgb.edu by July 31 in order to be included in the fall edition of the Human Mosaic.
 

Seeking participants: ‘Boxes and Walls’ initiative coming this spring

The UW-Green Bay Diversity Task Force is seeking students and staff for this spring’s “Boxes and Walls,” a multi-sensory exhibition that will compel visitors to confront some of society’s most challenging and complex issues. The Boxes and Walls experience will demonstrate the reality of hate crimes and covert and open acts of oppression as our community experiences them, engaging attendees in topics such as war, culture, transgender, homelessness, racism, sexism, homophobia, body image, classism, ableism and ageism. Participants will be guided through rooms in which they will view or participate in various scenarios, and then will engage in a discussion to reflect on what they’ve experienced. If you or your class would be willing to host one of the rooms, or help out in any way, please contact Jeff Willems at Willemsj@uwgb.edu or 465-2962.

Wanted: Spring diversity events to spotlight in ‘Human Mosaic’

The Diversity Task Force is again looking for those programs, lectures or events you would like to promote to the campus in our spring 2014 edition of the “The Human Mosaic.” The brochure promotes a wide array of campus diversity programs in a way that should appeal to UW-Green Bay students and increase your attendance as well as increase their awareness and help them examine various forms of diversity, including ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, culture and religion. Please submit your event name, date, time and location with a simple abstract as you would like it presented in “The Human Mosaic” to Jeff Willems of Residence Life, the Diversity Task Force co-chair, at Willemsj@uwgb.edu by Dec. 20, 2013. Thank you in advance for increasing the students ability to learn and grow in different venues.

Human Mosaic calendar is here… and there

The hard copy of the Human Mosaic will be delivered this week. If you can’t wait … check it out on the Res Life or the AIC web page. Staff member Jeff Willems extends thanks to Liv Sailer for the great graphic design and layout of this printing. Also, he encourages members of the campus community to start thinking about events or programs that would fit into the spring semester edition. If you don’t have an event or program? The Diversity Task Force is looking for rooms for their Boxes and Walls program in the spring. Contact Jeff Willems willemsj@uwgb.edu for more information or attend a Diversity Task Force Meeting. They are held every other Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. in MAC 201.

Boxes and Walls exercise takes place April 10, 11

The campus Diversity Task Force would like to remind everyone to attend (or have your classes attend) the program called Boxes and Walls. This self-guided program with discussion at the end will be held April 10 and 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. both days. It will start in the Alumni Rooms and finish in University Union 103. This newly updated program is a multisensory exhibition of some of the most difficult and complex issues that society faces today. “The experience will demonstrate the reality of hate crimes, overt and open acts of discrimination and oppression as our community experiences them. This program will be a more passive experience than some people might have experienced in the past but it will continue to have a lot of valuable information represented in a visual manner and be an experience you will not want to miss.” The rooms this year are on poverty, First Nations, war – gory or glory, and gender. If you need more information or special arrangements, please contact Jeff Willems at willemsj@uwgb.edu or 465-2962.
