Successful "Dinner in El Salvador" (First in a series of "Diversity Dinners") held in the Department - November 16, 2012
The Get Global Student Club along with the Department of Global Studies and Geography held its first Diversity Dinner, "Dinner in El Salvador," on Friday evening, November 16, 2012. Senior Geography major, Danny Bautista, moderated the evening. Bautista, of Salvadoran ethnicity and who lived in El Salvador as a child, shared Salvadoran cuisine as well as cultural and geographical facts. Some 30 students, faculty, and Bautista family members enjoyed this successful evening—the first in a series of planned "Diversity Dinners." With funding provided by the HCLAS Dean's Office as well as the Office of the Provost, this series of diversity events aims to broaden understanding across cultural divides and to foster student curiosity in our increasingly globalized world.
