Deconstruction Zone at the Cross-Cultural Center

Dear Colleagues,

The Cross-Cultural Center is being transformed into Deconstruction Zone during Week 4 (April 24-28). Deconstruction Zone is an annual spring event open to the broader campus community that aims to educate participants about various forms of oppression and engage them in current social issues via film screenings, interactive exhibits, and educational passives.

I invite you to explore our exhibits and passives, participate in guided and self-guided tours, and watch film screenings. Note that self-guided tours will take place all week. Guide maps can be found in the lobby of the Cross-Cultural Center beginning Monday afternoon for those who wish to participate in a self-guided tour. Guided tours will only take place on Monday, April 24 from 2-5 p.m. and be led by students from our REACH Program.

Here are highlights:

Monday, April 24
Self-guided tours begin at 2 p.m.
Guided tours from 2-5 p.m. Meet outside the Ring Room.
