THE

POWER

OF THE SPOKEN WORD

FALL ‘13

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

PROGRAM GUIDE

OFFICE OF THE PROVOST

This year, America honored the 50th anniversary of a march on Washington, D.C., where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke his most memorable words: “I have a dream.” He reminded America of the “fierce urgency of now” and in his speech that day, Dr. King shaped an image that, for some, created the first glimmers of real hope. They were transformative words that would change a nation. Half a dozen years later, these words were spoken: “That’s one small step for a man…”You know the rest. Everyone does. They are the most famous words never spoken on Earth. And they were spoken by a Boilermaker named Neil Armstrong. And 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of a Civil War that, but for one man, would have separated our United States forever. Many score and many years ago, Abraham Lincoln spoke at Gettysburg: “Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” In recognition of the spoken word, the 2013-14 programmatic theme for the Division of Diversity and Inclusion is “The Power of the Spoken Word.” Throughout the year, we will offer programs and educational experiences, which underscore the power of the spoken word and how it impacts our ability to build a more inclusive campus community. One of the major program features for the fall will be a campus visit by Dr. Derald Wang Sue, a professor of psychology at Columbia University. Dr. Sue’s campus visit, on Thursday, November 14, 2013, will focus on microaggressions, the brief and everyday slights, insults, indignities and denigrating messages sent to diverse community members by wellintentioned majority community members. Dr. Sue argues that microaggressions usually happen at an unconscious level by the perpetrators, they are not intended to offend. These spoken words are often subtle, such that neither the target nor the perpetrator really knows what is going on – but both know something has transpired. Dr. Sue is a noted scholar, author and lecturer. We invite you to take advantage of the array of educational opportunities provided by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion as we work to build a more inclusive campus community. 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

DIVISION OF DIVERSITY.PURDUE.EDU DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION 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.

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.

PURDUE.EDU/DRO

DIVERSITY RESOURCE OFFICE 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. The Diversity Resource Office evaluates and assesses diversity programs and activities for their impact on the campus climate. DRO also coordinates the Purdue Network of IDI (Intercultural Development Inventory) Certified Administrators.

¡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.

PURDUE.EDU/LGBTQ

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER, AND QUEER CENTER 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.

The Native American Educational and Cultural Center (NAECC) is home away from home for Native American, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian students, faculty, and staff. Established in 2007 through student and campus advocacy, the NAECC was created to develop a new generation of educated students who will make positive contributions to their tribal communities and educate non-Natives about Indigenous cultures, histories, and traditions. The NAECC serves as Purdue’s focal point for campus and community Indigenous programs including: • Culturally relevant programming that portrays a realistic image of Indigenous people while promoting a greater understanding and appreciation for Indigenous cultures. • Serving as a communication link between the campus and tribal communities in Indiana and the U.S., establishing professional development and leadership opportunities and sponsoring cross cultural learning experiences related to Native histories and perspectives. • Collaborating with university-wide programs that promote degree advancement into graduate school, provide educational opportunities for pre-college students, and partner with local Native American organizations to provide Indigenous speakers on campus. • Providing resources to encourage learning and empowerment. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to take advantage of the NAECC’s facilities to study, use computer lab or meet in the multipurpose room and to use the NAECC’s media collection composed of books, periodicals and educational DVDs.

PURDUE.EDU/SCIENCEBOUND

Día de los Muertos 4:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m. - PMU Ballrooms

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration with a long and rich history rooted in the indigenous cultures of Mexico, originally observed during the Aztec month that coincided with our month of August. It was moved to the first and second days of November to coincide with the Catholic holidays of All Soul’s Day and All Saint’s Day upon arrival of the Spanish. The Aztec celebration upholds their belief that life is a dream and one awakens upon death. Today with a mixture of indigenous ritual, Catholicism, and pop-culture, the observance of Día de los Muertos is a unique celebration that illustrates the flexibility of culture and the importance of holding on to one’s history and roots. Many times misconceived as a celebration of death, the Día de los Muertos serves more as a vibrant and colorful celebration of life. Call for Altar Builders: Community, campus departments, and student organizations are welcome to participate. Altars can be traditional or contemporary in style. Creativity and individuality are strongly encouraged. If you are interested in creating an altar for the upcoming DDLM celebration please contact us at latinocc@lists.purdue.edu Sponsored by the Latino Cultural Center and the Purdue Student Union Board.
