Appreciating Others: A Program on Diversity and Tolerance.
Baker, Tamara L.
This program was developed to help students address how they can create solutions to persistent problems in their residence halls and on campus. Too often diversity programs are inwardly-focused and far removed from practical action that could increase understanding and reduce conflict. This program seeks to combine self-reflection with active problem solving to enhance learning and move closer to the goal of campus unity. Specifically, the goals of this program are as follows: (1) allow a forum to talk about diversity in order to share enjoyment in and encourage pride of one's own unique characteristics, as well as to educate others about issues and concerns with which they may not be familiar; (2) place responsibility in the hands of the students for seeking, establishing, and encouraging campus unity; (3) shift focus from authorities teaching youth about diversity issues to providing a sharing among equals for participants' individual interest and personal growth.
