We live in a world where people from diverse backgrounds, experiences, social identities and ideologies must live, work, learn and grow together. Many times we face acts of intolerance or injustice and we just keep fighting as if there has been no impact. We get up every day and make sure others are well and don’t take time to take care of ourselves. This session will address the following and introduce tools and key concepts for engaging a world where all people matter and we can build the capacity to see the world differently without doing each other unintended harm.

  • Provide an opportunity for participants to share their feelings about how they have been impacted by racial intolerance.
  • Create the space to deepen campus community members’ capacity to respectfully engage conversation about race dynamics.
  • Promote individual and community healing.

President Mark and First Lady Debbie Kennedy developed the Eye of the Hawk Lecture Series as a way to bring the UND community together to discuss important topics with preeminent experts. The UND College of Arts & Sciences Eye of the Hawk Lecture is sponsored by Rick and Jody Burgum.
