The University of Wisconsin – La Crosse Presents

Boxes and Walls

 

Boxes and Walls is an event hosted by the Diversity Organization Coalition in the Spring Semester at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. This event is also co-sponsored by several Human Diversity Student Organizations which include:

  • Asian Student Organization
  • Black Student Unity
  • Broadening Horizons
  • Hmong Organization Promoting Education
  • Latin American Student Organization
  • Rainbow Unity
  • Students Advocating for Potential Ability


A Brief Overview

  • The purpose of this event is to promote awareness by educating UW-L students, high school students, and the La Crosse community about diversity.
  • The sponsoring organizations are working together to encourage equity and acceptance.
  • Each group creates a space where individuals that enter the space are given the opportunity to see life through a different perspective and face the issues this group encounters.
  • As participants leave the event, they will have hopefully walked out with a better understanding and knowledge about diversity and social justice issues. We hope to encourage students to seek out more information on social justice issues.

We hope that you extend this invitation to everyone, especially to offer students the opportunity to gain a practical experience to better understand diversity. If you have any questions please contact Veronica Velez at velez.vero@uwlax.edu who would be more than happy to answer any questions.
