IDENTITY EXPRESS YOURSELF

OFFICE OF THE PROVOST

Dear Colleagues: Welcome to the Spring edition of the 2012-2013 Diversity and Inclusion Program Guide! The Division of Diversity and Inclusion is dedicated to opportunities for increasing awareness, encouraging conversations, and incorporating thought about diversity and inclusion into the fabric of the Purdue environment. As the Fall semester closed, our Cultural Centers and Offices recorded over 100 opportunities for individual engagement with issues of diversity and inclusion. Because of those successes, we are delighted to continue our focus on IDENTITY for the Spring Semester. The concept of IDENTITY forms the connective tissue of our programming initiatives demonstrated by the topics and themes for and about multicultural populations. Our programs take the form of films, lectures and presentations featuring multicultural spoken word, visual and performing artists. During this semester, we will continue our exploration of relevant IDENTITY markers and the different and enriching lived experiences we each bring to the Purdue community. We hope you will join us in listening to Purdue community members tell their stories. We look forward to your attendance at the lectures by visiting scholars. And we invite you to join in the larger conversation as we all work to enhance the tapestry of ethnicities, sexual orientations, and social cultures that is Purdue! Please share the guide with others. Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate our programming into lesson plans. For more information, visit our website at DIVERSITY.PURDUE.EDU. Best,

G. Christine Taylor, Ph. D. Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion Purdue University Hovde Hall of Administration, Room 130 n 610 Purdue Mall n West Lafayette, IN 47907-2040 (765) 494-6969 n diversity@purdue.edu

INTERACTING WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Purdue University’s Division of Diversity and Inclusion (DDI) is leading the University in the construction of a dynamic and synergistic campus community that is positioned to support the University’s plans “to meet the challenges facing humanity, grow and create opportunities for Indiana and the global economy, and enhance student learning for success in a changing world.” Enhancing the success of all students, faculty and staff depends on collaboratively pursuing best practices in diversity and inclusion alongside cutting-edge efforts to support academic excellence. To that end, DDI brings together resources, cultural centers and diversity programs across campus: • To create and sustain a welcoming campus where all students can excel. • To retain and increase the numbers of historically underrepresented and multicultural students, faculty and staff. • To facilitate Purdue’s inclusion of all its students in programs which ensure successful participation in our global environment. The Division of Diversity and Inclusion provides oversight to the centers presented in this guide, including the Black Cultural Center, Diversity Resource Office, Latino Cultural Center, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Center, Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation, Native American Educational and Cultural Center, and Science Bound Program. Additionally, The Division of Diversity and Inclusion works collaboratively with a number of other University Colleges and Schools to facilitate their diversity programs.

B L A C K CULTURAL CENTER

WWW.PURDUE.EDU/BCC

Purdue University’s Black Cultural Center (BCC) is a vibrant element of university life, offering a wealth of programs and services for the entire campus community. Founded in 1969 as part of the university’s response to sweeping social change, the BCC has grown and matured into Purdue’s focal point for the African American experience and a force for the cultural enrichment and intellectual growth of all. We bring together the wonderful diversity of the Purdue family by nurturing and presenting the rich heritage of the African American experience through art, history and cultural understanding. The center sponsors outstanding student performing arts ensembles in dance, drama, choral music, creative writing and collective thought. We also house a special collections library, a computer lab, and student organization offices and meeting space. The BCC is home to an impressive art collection which features authentic African artifacts as well as original artwork by African American artists. The Black Cultural Center also offers educational and cultural tours for classes and groups. These tours help students fulfill class requirements and experience diversity. The tours expose students to African American history, cultural traditions and ideas which encourage deeper and more complex thinking. Incorporated into the tours are descriptions of artifacts, architecture and explanations of the purposes for the performing arts. The overall environment of the BCC promotes cultural and educational dialogue and discussion.

The Diversity Resource Office (DRO) at Purdue University cultivates an environment of respect and inclusion among faculty, staff, and students. The Office works collaboratively with Purdue colleges and schools to support their diversity goals. DRO provides consultative services to both academic and administrative units. Diversity education opportunities and incentives for Purdue students, staff, and faculty are provided through DRO programming including the DiversiKey Certificate Program, Project L.E.A.D. (Learning through Experience and Awareness in Diversity), Teaching to Diversity workshops for new graduate teaching assistants, Diversity at Work a multi-module training program for staff, and the Diversity in The Classroom Project/ Diversity Faculty Fellows Initiative. Global diversity is a signature area for DRO and each year the office is pleased to host a Visiting Global Diversity Scholar from a university outside the United States. DRO also sponsors the DiversiKey Seminar Abroad (DSA), a short-term study abroad experience for students in the DiversiKey Program. Finally, to facilitate networking, communication, and collaboration, DRO established and coordinates the Purdue Diversity Roundtable, a forum for staff with diversity related portfolios.

L AT I N O CULTURAL CENTER WWW.PURDUE.EDU/LCC

¡TODOS SON BIENVENIDOS! (ALL ARE WELCOME!) is the guiding philosophy of the Latino Cultural Center (LCC). The LCC was established in 2003 as a place to gather, learn, share and support Latino cultures. The LCC seeks to enhance diversity through education and programming but also acts as a home-away-from-home among Latinos at Purdue. The LCC serves as an educational and cultural foundation for all students, faculty and staff members. Educational, social, professional and cultural events are hosted and sponsored by the center throughout the year. These events are designed to foster open relationships across campus and in the community and to educate about and celebrate the Latino culture. In addition to programming, the LCC also provides an array of resources for Latino/a students and visitors to the center. Some of these resources include an ITaP computer lab, a Latin American book & media collection, study, multipurpose room and conference rooms. The LCC facility exists to provide an environment for academic success as well as support for a culture that is both familiar and essential to the Purdue academic community.

WWW.PURDUE.EDU/LGBTQ

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Center is a recent addition to the Division of Diversity and Inclusion at Purdue University. The Center provides programming that engages the campus and community on LGBTQ issues through an exciting calendar of events. The LGBTQ Center coordinates a distinguished lecture series, advocates for equitable access and a discrimination-free environment, and facilitates a variety of training opportunities throughout the year. The Center is the primary point of contact for members of the LGBTQ community. It works collaboratively with campus departments, student organizations, university administration, and local community groups to connect students with enriching resources, activities, and support services they seek in order to be successful at Purdue University and beyond. Located in the Engineering Administration Building (ENAD 301), our space is a dedicated Safe Zone that provides a welcoming and affirming location on campus for all, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. The LGBTQ Center maintains an extensive print and media library as well as a collection of original artwork and historical artifacts that communicate an all too often hidden history. Tours of the Center highlight the diverse LGBTQ community, relate key historical moments, explore the complexity of identity, address common stereotypes and misinformation about LGBTQ people, and create opportunities for building intercultural dialogue and connections.

HOW TO INTEGRATE THE DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION PROGRAMMING INTO YOUR CLASSROOM AND ORGANIZATIONAL ACTIVITIES 1. If you would like to have a tour or visit one of our three cultural centers, contact the desired cultural center (Black Cultural Center, Latino Cultural Center, Native American Educational and Cultural Center) at least two (2) weeks in advance to schedule a group tour. (NOTE: If you would like to have this visit serve as an extra credit assignment, provide a sign‐in sheet at the desired cultural center as a way of ensuring attendance.) 2. When assigning a visit to the cultural center, please prepare the students by providing an in‐classroom context for the center visit or attendance at a particular program. We believe this strategy will make the experience more meaningful for the students and facilitate the desired learning outcomes. 3. or in‐class activity.
