Identity-based Centers

We are a collective of leaders, educators, and most importantly, people looking to serve as a resource for all undergraduate and graduate students interested in thinking about social identities and the ways they impact our lives and our world. We offer students opportunities for events, discussion, and leadership on issues of identity, diversity, and social justice. Most importantly, we provide all students a place to go and a place to be heard. Visit us at any of our Centers.

Upcoming Events & Deadlines

Jan 27, 2020

On January 8, the downing of the Ukrainian flight took the lives of 176 innocent passengers and crew and devastated many. People on board were Iranian, Canadian, British, Afghan, Swedish citizens. The  great majority of these passengers were Iranians and Iranian dual citizens who were studying abroad and were returning to their universities after spending the winter break with their families in Iran. The shocking news has broken hearts of many of us Iranian students abroad who identify with our peers who were killed and their lost hopes and dreams. Join us for a vigil at Goddard Chapel on Monday, January 27 from 5 to 6 p.m. to take a moment to grieve this painful loss and to light candles in memory of the souls of the passengers of flight PS752.

Ceremony, 5-6 p.m.; Reception 6-7 p.m.
