Schedule of Events
Monday. Nov. 12
International Dress Day
All Day | Campuswide
The Association of International Students invites you to participate in International Dress Day. Dress in your cultural dress to class! As part of the spirit of International Education Week, this gives everyone the opportunity to represent their cultures. However, please avoid wearing clothes that are not part of your own culture because we want this to be a space where everyone is able to properly represent themselves, avoiding any cultural appropriation. Seeing people on campus wearing their cultural garments will enable more conversations about different international cultures.

"Standing Up and Speaking Out: Confronting Hate With Love and Courage"
Keynote Address From Dr. Simran Jeet Singh, 2018 Luce/ACLS Fellow for Religion, Journalism, and International Affairs and Visiting Scholar at New York University’s Center for Religion and Media
7:00 - 9:30 p.m. | Campus Center Main Lounge
Hate and fear are spreading across our nation, and it’s no longer enough to simply oppose it in principle. How do we work for social justice in a way that is intersectional, impactful, and sustainable? Come reflect on these issues with Dr. Simran Jeet Singh, who will share his personal experiences as a Sikh, his wisdom as a scholar of religion and history, and his insights as a racial justice and civil rights activist.
Simran Jeet Singh is 2018 Luce/ACLS Fellow for Religion, Journalism, and International Affairs and Visiting Scholar at New York University’s Center for Religion and Media.
Presented by the Dharmic Students Association, Muslim Students Association, and South Asian Students Association.
