Diversity Forum

The Great Plains Diversity Forum and brown bag is an opportunity to create dialogue on contemporary issues affecting underrepresented groups and the effects these issues have on South Dakota and beyond. Topics range from the language of oppression to religious diversity to accommodations for ADA.

Forums are conducted in an environment that fosters thoughtful discussion, disagreement, and respectful sharing of views and opinions, where all are welcome and all may discover.

The sessions are held once a month, during the academic school year. Please check the calendar of upcoming dates and topics. Sessions are held in the Trojan Center Underground.

The sessions are also broadcast live via the Internet. If you would like to provide questions for upcoming sessions, suggest possible topics for future sessions or if you are seeking other information on the Great Plains Diversity Forum, please contact jennifer.aranda@dsu.edu.
