Learn Our History

In 2011, the College of Arts & Sciences’ Dean’s Office convened the first Critical Diversity Studies Forum, centered on the critical examination of the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender, and justice in the United States. Over the years, forum topics have included coalition building, fulfilling dreams of equality and freedom, displacement, nonviolent activism, collective leadership, representation, voice, and power. In 2014, the forum achieved a milestone: the formation of the Critical Diversity Studies major that exemplifies the mission and values of the university.
