  • No Stupid Questions
    TBD
    Participants will be able to ask a diverse student panel questions anonymously regarding identity (race, gender, class, religion etc). This event is aimed towards creating a safe environment where these questions can be asked and answered. Participants will also learn how to properly ask questions and discuss topics around identity inside and outside of the classroom.
