Drama undergraduates who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color are invited to a series of three "hangouts" with artist/activist Sara Porkalob, who is working with the School of Drama to develop a mentorship program for BIPOC undergraduates.
March 31 at 1:30pm
April 1 at 4:30pm
April 6 at 4:30pm
In the fall, the School of Drama announced that the school would produce a series of mentorship panels for BIPOC/global majority undergraduates this year. This quarter, Sara has been leading regular meetings with a group of faculty and staff to plan the panels. Through these conversations, we have recognized a need to engage more deeply with you in order to bring this program into alignment with our goal of building a relational culture in the school. SO, we will not hold a mentorship panel this quarter. Instead, Sara will host a series of small, social gatherings with BIPOC/global majority undergraduate students with the goals of building relationships and of better understanding your needs, hopes, and ideas for the program. Based on these conversations, Sara will work with you and the SoD to develop a panel, symposium, or other type of programming that is responsive to your needs. That program will take place during spring quarter.
These events will be part introductions, interactive exercises, and symposium aka questions/responses/reflections focusing on mentorship and other relevant topics as they arise. You are welcome to attend multiple hangouts if you wish.
