New Common Experience theme to address desegregation


‘Exploring Democracy’s Promise: From Segregation to Integration’ will serve as the Common Experience theme for the 2014-2015 academic year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the university’s desegregation.

The desegregation celebration began May 1when the first five African-American students at the university were brought back to speak about their experiences, said Diann McCabe, co-chair of Common Experience. Philosophy dialogues, student films, a gallery in the Honors College and a series of play readings are some of the events students can participate in to learn more about the new theme, McCabe said. The campus-wide events and activities will help highlight the progress the university has made.
