The Office of Multicultural Programs is pleased to sponser and host a multitude of conversations, all centralized around the idea of choice. These conversations aims to unify and create natural dialogue within our community, and are open to all parties interested. It is our hope that such conversations--held in both a respectable and engaging manner--will help to set an example for others: teaching them ways to interact with controversial or "hot-button" issues in today's society.
