Cultural convo hour explores implicit biases

Apr 15, 2014

"I'm a white guy—about as white as you can get," Rev. David MacDonald said when he opened the session, citing his English and Scottish heritage. But, that doesn't mean I'm not affected by the perceptions and biases of the world, he said.

And you are a big part of that.

Even though the first official day of spring was March 20, those of us at ONU haven't gotten to experience spring until just recently.  There are many universal signs of spring that are enjoyed by everyone regardless of location; however some signs of spring are uniquely intrinsic to experiencing the season here at ONU.

1. Now that the weather is getting warm you may be fortunate enough to have class outside. Some professors will oblige to the request of students to hold class under a nice shade tree or sitting at a group of picnic tables.
