  • Image preview 8:00am - 7:00pm: Responsibilities and Rights: Community and Free Speech Symposium
    How does “free speech” operate on a private, liberal arts campus? Where are the legal boundaries? How do we make sense of the impact of speech on others, especially in relation to power, equity, and privilege? Where are the tensions between speech and community? This symposium seeks to explore these questions and more as we situate them in the context of Lewis & Clark College.

  • Image preview 6:00pm - 7:30pm: IME Wokeshop: What is Cultural Appropriation?
    It is common to enjoy learning about cultures from around the world. Because of this curiosity and desire to celebrate cultures, it is important that we understand the difference between cultural exchange and cultural appropriation. Once we understand the difference, it is much easier to make decisions on how best to celebrate and acknowledge stories, artifacts, customs, and traditions of a culture. Everyone is welcome!
