Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion DocuSeries
The Diversity and Inclusion DocuSeries is a film series that centers the stories and narratives of marginalized folks both nationally and globally. Following the screening of the films, attendees participate in a facilitated discussion, led by a UW Oshkosh faculty/staff or a Fox Valley community member. A major goal of the film series is to spotlight the narrative of folks who are actively excluded from mainstream media, discourse, etc. Additionally, the DocuSeries attendees will engage in conversations that challenge their knowledge of the world as well as gain a critical lens when considering their individual roles in oppression and marginalization. Films are screened once a month. Past films have included: Defiant Lives, Kiki, Anita: Speaking Truth to Power, and more!
Identity Panel Series
The Identity Panel Series is a semesterly panel comprised of UWO students sharing their experiences of campus as students with marginalized identities. The students speak to how they navigate campus and the greater Oshkosh community. Everyone is invited to attend and the conversations of the panel will center those who hold the centered identities. Past panels have included: multiracial women and people with disabilities.
An Alternative Break is a trip where a group of 9 college students engage in volunteer service over a University break period. Each trip has a focus on a particular social issue, such as (but not limited to) education, privilege, health education and sustainability. Students learn about the social issues and then perform service projects with local non-profit organizations. Alternative Breaks challenge students to critically think and react to problems faced by members of the communities in which they are involved. To learn more, visit this website.
There are over 150 student organizations on campus, and a number of them are focused on diversity and social justice. Visit Titan Connection for a full list.
