One of Many is a large event where students, faith leaders, and community members will engage in an interfaith dialogue by sharing stories about the ways religion influences our values, norms, and policies. Rather than tokenizing a single identity, this conversation seeks to create a space that recognizes the complex ways religion contributes to diverse identities in order to create a more inclusive campus community.
At the event, participants will listen to selected stories of how faith has impacted an individual's student identity. Small groups will build conversations by sharing stories and experiences over a light dinner.
If your RSO would like to participate, we encourage you spread your members out amongst the tables to promote diverse discussions.
