Indigenous Student Services Upcoming Events

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Come join Indigenous Services, Indigenous Services Leadership Students, and local community organizations in recognizing and bringing awareness to the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which occurs annually on March 21.

This year is the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which underscores the "urgency of combatting racism and racial discrimination".

During our on-campus event there will be opportunity to:

  • Engage with local community groups that deliver and lead anti-racism initiatives within our community
  • Contribute to this year's "Messages of Anti-Racism and Diversity Hand Display"
  • Resources created by students related to anti-racism and discrimination that can be taken away
  • Opportunities to engage in discussion and connect with other students on campus
