The Committee hopes that through its programming efforts, members of the Hendrix community as well as members of the surrounding communities, will begin to realize and appreciate how each individual, each group, and the community as a whole are all involved in a continuous dynamic interaction that simultaneously accepts each individual’s and each group’s uniqueness but also all people’s common humanity. The Committee is also dedicated to assisting and acting as liaison for other student organizations that fall under the Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs, as well as assisting any student organization that examines issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, and disability, to promote cross-cultural understanding, and campus social cohesion.
