Students in the Field Methods course in partnership with Fitzgerald Library staff recently held The Race Card Project to discover more about our campus climate in various dimensions of human diversity. The project invited participants to write their thoughts around important topics such as race, ethnicity, and cultural identity in six words or less. The notes were then displayed on a board in the library Oct. 28-Nov. 7. A candid, follow-up conversation was held on Nov. 9 where a panel discussion was led by students Tyler Aliperto, Logan McCabe, and Stanley Wright, Jr., and moderated by Laura Oanes, Fitzgerald Library director, and Valerie Edwards Robeson, Human Services program coordinator and associate professor of Social Science.
