Have you ever felt left out? Out of the loop? Under represented? As SGA aims to continue to serve and promote the individual student, we invite everyone to participate in a discussion about diversity and inclusion on campus. In conjunction with Critical Conversations, SGA will be hosting its second Town Hall of the semester on November 29th at 7 PM in Mell 2550.

This event is more than asking questions to experts, it’s about asking questions about yourself and peers. Guests will be grouped with people they do not know and asked to tackle difficult topics together. Garry Morgan, Special Assistant for Inclusion and Diversity Education, will mediate the discussion. This event strives to encourage people to broaden their horizons and gain a new perspective on other people’s viewpoints. As students take an active role in the conversation rather than listening to a lecture, topics from previous Critical Conversations will be addressed and discussed to help reignite the subject.

This speaker series continues to serve as a way to expand the discussion on campus surrounding difficult topics, and it is SGA’s hope that our next Town Hall will help continue the conversation. If you are unable to attend this event but would like to have your voice heard, please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to express any concerns or utilize Auburn Answers to ensure that SGA continues to best serve your needs.
