Center for "Race," Culture & Social Justice

In Converation...

In Conversation … at the Center for “Race” is a featured program of roundtable discussions around everyday issues that involve race and social justice, and that directly impact the Hofstra community. The aim is to create a space for conversation –and to bridge the gap— between staff, students, faculty and administrators of all ranks, giving an equal voice to everyone. In Conversation … at the Center for “Race” will take place twice per semester, during common hour, on the second Wednesday of the month.
