This website compiles the work of a class called Culture and Community, in the Critical Theory and Social Justice Department of Occidental College. The aim of the students in the course was to critically examine the college's history regarding diversity, multiculturalism, and equity, in relation to student experiences.
In exploring themes of Equity and Diversity, we have developed different sections for each time period. Our work is showcased in the following exhibits, collections, and items.
