Britney Summerville, Assistant Coordinator of Residential Education Presents: At the Table or On the Menu: Being an Ally or Accomplice for Change       

 Are you an ally or an accomplice? At the Table or On the Menu aims to compare and contrast the differences between the two. Often times we self prescribe as being an ally but what does being an ally actually mean? We will discuss a new social justice concept that will change the way we advocate for our students and those around us.  This workshop is part of our Diversity/Inclusion Series
