The director coordinates activities that encourage exploration of one's identity, culture and heritage and an understanding of those of others. The office emphasizes the interests and needs of those who identify as students of color, beginning with the first-year preorientation program. The multicultural affairs office serves as a source of guidance and advocacy for students of color as they navigate their Smith experience.
Baltimore: Conversation and Connection
Wednesday, April 29, 5 pm
Campus Center 103/104
A time to process and respond to the events in Baltimore that have unfolded since the killing of Freddie Gray, a black man who died in police custody. This conversation will recognize the problem of police brutality toward people of color and the many narratives - in the media and among individuals—that shape people's thoughts and feelings about what is happening. Join us for a time for support, solidarity, learning, and making connections on the Smith campus. Pizza served to first 25 people. Hosted by Jennifer Walters and Matilda Cantwell of the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life
