"I'm a Culture, Not a Costume" (SCC)

Students, faculty and staff spend part of the calendar year on campus observing a variety of different and diverse holidays. Unfortunately, being around during any observation can be fraught with stress and anxiety as campus members face cultural appropriation or misappropriation, are plagued with questions about their observations, and struggle to feel validated and included in their identities during various holidays throughout the year.


This presentation will assist in creating awareness on how to be mindful of how holidays impact others so you can address cultural appropriation and misappropriation, costume choices, and cultural celebrations that take place throughout the year in an intentional way. This presentation will also assist in expanding your knowledge base of the impact of holidays, observances and celebrations so you can educate the community on being more inclusive and understanding.
