LETTER: Celebrate Black History Month at IU

·

As part of Indiana University’s commitment to create environments in which all students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed, the university is proud to honor the backgrounds and identities of the members of IU’s community through heritage month celebrations. Through programming and other means of support, IU’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (OVPDEMA) endorses: Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (April), LGBT Pride Month (June), Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month (September), LGBT History Month (October), and Native American Heritage Month (November). And of course, February is Black History Month. When it comes to the heritage months, I believe that as a community, IU should be curious about learning more about all cultures throughout the year — not just for a month at a time.

LETTER: Trump's totem pole

·

If I can be completely honest, I am scared for the direction this country is taking. How are we expected to teach younger generations about respect for others’ differences when our nation’s leader consistently double-downs on supporting his inflamatory rhetoric.
