This website compiles the work of students in independent research and classes to critically examine the college's history regarding diversity, multiculturalism, and equity, in relation to student experiences. This initiative was launched with Professor Donna Maeda in the Spring 2014 course "Culture and Community," in the Critical Theory and Social Justice Department of Occidental College. In exploring themes of Equity and Diversity, the work is showcased in the exhibits, collections, and items.


Roots of Programs

Our latest project created in the Summer 2017 is an interactive map and timeline. This exhibit by Alma Olavarría Gallegos showcases the formation of four programs: Intercultural Community Center, Center for Gender Equity, Multicultural Summer Institute and Project S.A.F.E.
