Black History Month 2021
St. Francis College celebrates the achievements of African Americans and recognizes their central role in U.S. history every February through a series of events presented by student leaders, faculty members and administrators.
Among the activities planned this month include a Town Hall Meeting for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for students, led by Jeffrey Emil Diaz, SFC Interim Chief of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
The SFC community and public can also attend a panel discussion called The Hard Point, focused on social injustice. The event is hosted by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and The Black Student Union (BSU).
BSU is spearheading a slate of other activities for their student peers, including an online trivia contest focused on Black history, and an open conversation among students – called Common Ground – aimed at finding areas of agreement around controversial issues. BSU will also use their Instagram account, @sfc.bsu, throughout February to tell stories of historically influential African Americans.
5-Day Racial Equity Challenge
In an effort to spark meaningful conversations, the St. Francis College community is challenged to complete a 5-Day Racial Equity Challenge based on one week of CUPA-HR's 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge.
