An Ignatian Approach to Decision Making
Nearly 40 staff and faculty attended "An Ignatian Approach to Decision Making" on April 4, 2017, which explored ways in which Ignatian discernment and values can be implemented into every day decision-making.
Razing the Roof
40 staff and faculty attended "Raze the Roof; Raze the Stairs; Raze your Thinking about Disabilities," held on November 4, 2015. This event encouraged the BC community to think differently about disabilities--not to pity or scorn but to pave a way for access into buildings, curriculum, workplaces, gatherings, friendships, and more.
Arab Americans: The New Blacks
The lunch and learn diversity series hosted by the OID started in 2013. This event, "Arab Americans: The New Blacks," held on April 24, 2014, was one of the first of the series.
