COVID-19 and the APIDA Community (open to OSU students and staff)

Wednesday, April 8, 4:00-5:30 PM, via Zoom

In the months since COVID-19 has been circulating, Asian-Americans and Asians around the world have experienced heightened levels of verbal and physical aggression. Websites, multiple media outlets and an overwhelming amount of social media has contributed to what some experts care calling an info-demic: widespread sharing of misinformation and misunderstanding of the facts.

The MCC is hosting a community conversation about the impact COVID-19 is having on Asian/Asian American communities in this country and abroad. We'll begin by discussing this NPR podcast and article featuring Erika Lee, a historian at the University of Minnesota who studies history, immigration and epidemics. Please listen to this ahead of time. Our dialogue will then shift to raising awareness of the ways that unconscious (or conscious) bias is impacting our APIDA friends, loved ones and colleagues.

Join us in community as we address this important facet of the COVID-19 pandemic and formulate ways that we can each play a role in interrupting bias and creating safe and inclusive communities. For more information, please contact Sophia Antoun, Intercultural Specialist for APIDA Student Initiatives antoun.5@osu.edu. To participate, please register here.

20th Annual Multiple Perspectives Conference: Building Blocks for the Future

April 6-7, this conference has moved to an online format

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act the Ohio State University’s new ADA Coordinator held the first Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion & Disability conference. Conceived as a place for our community to gather and explore and learn about disability as a construct, an identity, and as a shared experience Multiple Perspectives became an ongoing conversation between lived experience and research; theory and practice; pragmatics and aspiration.  The theme of the first Multiple Perspectives conference, The Next 10 years, invited a look ahead from the first decade of the ADA.  As we look forward to the thirtieth anniversary of the ADA, I invite you to reflect on the themes from past Multiple Perspectives conferences as Building Blocks for the Future of Access, Inclusion & Disability.

National Conference on Diversity, Race & Learning

May 4- 5, The Ohio State University, Hale Hall & Fawcett Conference Center

The National Conference on Diversity, Race & Learning (NCDRL) is one of the university's most comprehensive conferences that focuses on issues of diversity, cultural inclusion and acceptance. We host this conference to strengthen and make new strides toward the goal of meaningful change. The conference offers a multi-leveled examination of "diversity" as a concept and its implementation within institutions of higher education, the corporate world, the religious community, the larger community, including public service. The themes examine, through participant discourse, ways to effectively bridge the economic, political and socio-educational divides that continue to be pertinent in the American social landscape and beyond.
