Diversity Café, which for the past year and a half has offered many students an easy-access way to meet the Cultural Engagement Experience requirements of the Integratus Program, will be changing its format for the upcoming spring semester. A series of 5 gatherings will be scheduled for Monday evenings, and participation will be capped at 30, to allow for better discussion.

In order to complete the experience and have their participation verified, students will need to attend at least 4 of the 5 scheduled Diversity Cafés. No late registrations will be accepted, and once the cap is reached, no more CE enrollments for Diversity Café will be processed. We hope this will result in a more organized, intentional, and meaningful experience for all participants.
