Hartwick College will celebrate the diversity of humanity through a series of events held across campus during the month of April.
“We are pleased that Hartwick has chosen April to celebrate the Diversity of Humanity – from library book displays to exhibits – to represent an intercultural mix somewhat reflective of the diversity of our community population,” said Harry Bradshaw Matthews, associate dean and director of the Office of Intercultural Affairs.
Headlining the month is the annual “Take Back the Night” march, held in conjunction with SUNY-Oneonta, which will take place on Thursday, April 12. The Hartwick stop along the route will occur at 7 p.m. outside Anderson Center for the Arts.
The Office of Intercultural Affairs, Black Student Alliance (BSA), Pluralism Associates League for Students (PALS), and Society of Sisters Unity/Brothers United (SOUSU/BU) will host the annual ALANA Students & Allies Awards & Recognition Dinner on Thursday, April 19 from 5 – 7 p.m.
The full schedule of events follows, and additional events may be scheduled. These are open to the public, unless otherwise noted, but advanced reservations may be required:
Also, throughout the month, Stevens-German Library in Yager Hall will feature a showcase of literature relating to Humanity. And The Yager Museum of Art & Culture will host two related exhibits, “Black Lives at Hartwick College: Then and Now,” and “Contested Identities: Images of Native Americans, 1880-1930.”
