No Place for Hate
Monday, April 4, 2016
7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. 
Perini Lecture Hall
Professional musicians and race relations experts, Arno Michaelis (former skinhead) and Daryl Davis (set up surprise meetings with Ku Klux Klan leaders), once stood worlds apart: one perpetrated violence while the other asked, "How can you hate me when you don't even know me?" No Place for Hate: A Conversation in Black and White is an unusual presentation that chronicles the unique experiences of these two men who have come together to support each other's passion to eradicate hate, bigotry and violence. Arno and Daryl discuss the transformative and universal power of music that can bind us in our humanity and eradicate racial boundaries. They demonstrate how music - in conjunction with communication, understanding, forgiveness, trust, love, and gratitude - can change hearts and minds.

Identifying and Managing Microaggressions in the Workplace
Friday, December 4th, 2015
2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

North Lounge
Discourse about discrimination has typically focused on blatant acts, less attention has been given to the casual, daily slights and in-sensitivities. Campus climates can be homes to microaggressions which can create unwelcoming environments and have a detrimental impact on academic performance, mental health, and levels of campus satisfaction. Microaggressions are the everyday verbal and nonverbal environmental slights, snubs, and insults, which (whether intentional or unintentional) communicate hostility and negativity in the workplace. They can invalidate people's existence and wipe away their humanity. This interactive session will help participants: identify and define microaggressions, become more self-aware during conversations, and offer strategies for ways to interrupt them.

True Life: Being Different on a Catholic Campus
Thursday, November 19th, 2015
6 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Multicultural Center
We are all "different" in some way or other. Some of us, however, are different in more visible ways while other people live with less visible differences such as chronic illness, or through their religious identity or sexuality. Living with invisible differences is often just as challenging as living with visible differences. Despite these challenges, people are often able to get the most out of their experiences and learn from each other's differences while also informing and educating others. It is often assumed that being different on a Catholic campus can significantly impede a student's experience, which for many students is not the case. Please join us and hear from a current senior about how being "different," both visibly and invisibly, has shaped his time as a student at Saint Anselm College.
