Coffee and Conversations

Join us for an hour of coffee and conversations, at the new Unity and Understanding Center *, where we discuss important matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This will be a safe place for the exploration and discussion of difficult topics, centered around race, gender and sexuality, cultural inequality, and social justice to name a few. Hawkeye students, faculty, and staff will also have a chance to:

  • Connect with each other.
  • Exchange ideas about changes related to diversity, equity, and inclusion that we would like to see on campus.
  • Exchange stories and experiences.
  • Learn more about the upcoming U2 center.
  • Explore ways to take action on our campus.
  • Enjoy coffee and cookies

* The Unity and Understanding Center is located in Hawkeye Center 202, the former Bookstore.

This Month's Topic: Supporting Latinx Students on Campus

Topics will include: What Latinx means, what challenges Latinx students face in our society and on campus, and best practices to support our students from this population.
