Retaining Your Identities
How does one face the pressures of assimilating into a dominant culture and jeopardizing the identities that you have? What does it take to develop a positive identity when societal forces tell you it is inferior?  Cultural conformity is a tremendous pressure on many marginalized students.  Interpretations of success and survival are often time-defined by one's ability to set oneself apart from who they are and adhere to societal norms.  What are the implications of such pressures?  If this interests you, please come and be a part of of a presentation/discussion led by the Peer Mentor team from the Center for Multicultural Affairs.

Stress and Success!
School! Work! Extracurriculars! Internships! Family! Friends! All of these things pile up and may cause you to have some stress in your life. While stress can be healthy in some senses if you have too much of it it could be potentially dangerous. How do we learn to deal with all of the things that stack up on top of each other? How do we learn to balance? How may these things affect different populations across campus and how do we help those students manage their stress? CMA Peers Mentors present Stress and Success: A workshop on understanding, examining, and coping with stress through a cultural lens.
Thursday, March 13
6:00 - 7:00pm


Colorblind Ideology:  the new age form of widespread racial oppression

Did social systems of racial oppression end with the civil rights movement?  Was the election of President Obama the culmination of Civil Rights? The times of overt racism may have come to a close, but societal racism in the U.S. continues to be a overwhelming issues for people of color as well as allies. This workshop is based off of Racism without racists by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva (4th Edition) which discuses the persistence color-blind racism in the US. Come and join the CMA Peer Mentor team as we present on a society that persists on declaring we all have the same opportunity when in reality we do not.
