Human Dignity Week

HumanDignityWeekThis week is Human Dignity Week and our campus is full of free events open to the entire DePaul community sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs.

“DePaul University is a community that respects the intrinsic dignity and inestimable value of each human person. We believe that the unique cultural backgrounds and personal diversity of our students, staff, and faculty enrich the DePaul experience. We understand that questioning, exploring, and embracing the various levels of personal diversity we all share will give us the necessary skills required for cultural awareness, sensitivity, humility, and action as participants in a global society” (Human Dignity Committee).

All of the Student Affairs departments have been hosting various events two of which are coming up!

The Department of Residential Education is hosting “Your Home on Campus: Inclusion and Micro-aggressions in the Residence Halls” on Thursday, October 24th from 11:30AM-1:00PM in LPSC Room 325. 

Are you a residential student at DePaul? Let’s talk about your experiences in your home on campus! Living in a residence hall provides many opportunities to explore and engage diverse perspectives and also demonstrate respect for others who may share views that are different than your own. Join us for this important conversation, and we’ll pick up the lunch bill! 

The Student Leadership Institute, OSI, and the Center for Intercultural Programs are hosting “Use Your Voice” on Friday, October 25th from 9:45AM-4:45PM in LPSC Room 120AB

Attend a free on-campus opportunity for all students
to build practical tools for activism and advocacy for social change through four interactive sessions. Meet other students who want to make a difference, gain applicable skills for creating change and learn tools and resources to make an impact. Lunch provided! Sign up for the entire day of events or select individual sessions at: http://is.gd/useurvoice
