BIPOC Community Gathering

BIPOC Community Gathering for Students, Faculty, and Staff

What Is A Community Gathering?

College of the Arts Community Gatherings are for BIPOC students, faculty, and staff and will continue in the Spring of 2024.

The BIPOC Community Gathering is a place where real conversations are had.  It is a place where BIPOC people can come to discuss and find a reprieve from today's societal challenges.

All events in the BIPOC Community Gathering event series are free and open to the public. We welcome students, faculty, administrators, and staff from the College of the Arts and throughout the University. It is our hope to have a diverse audience so that our conversations include multiple voices and perspectives.
