Our programs and events enrich University life by providing a space for faculty, staff and students to engage in learning and dialogue on a wide scope of social justice and diversity topics about races, gender identities, abilities, ages, ethnicities, nationalities, religions and spiritual traditions, socio-economic classes, and sexual orientations.
OMSA Story Circles:
This program will provide a chance for the UNH Community to discuss what working towards social justice looks like in practice. Staff, Faculty and Professors will share their lived experiences of being socialized into oppression and/or dominance, navigating their complexities, and resisting these forces in everyday life. Their narratives will be the start of a conversation, opening up the space for participants to discuss their own narratives, reflecting on commonalities and divergences in personal experiences. Whether you’re new to thinking about social justice or it’s always on your mind, this should provide a chance for us all to learn and grow as a community.
