What is the Pluralism AND Diversity Program?
Pluralism & Diversity at CSI is a program that aims to represent ethnic, religious, and cultural groups through various events and programs on campus. Our on-going goal is to celebrate our diversity while at the same time encouraging a unified campus.
One of the commitments of the College of Staten Island is to create in all aspects of campus life: “… a climate that fosters respect for the pluralism of American society”
The Pluralism & Diversity Program strives to:
- Educate about our differences
- Explore our commonalities
- Confront racism
- Challenge sexism
- Face homophobia
- Recognize ageism
- Address other such prejudice through education and enlightened example.
We encourage students to participate in various workshops and events and to learn from diversity!
