(3) Sat Oct 22 2005 11:33 we all need a little diversity in life...: So I am the Diversity sec. for USU, and we are currently brainstorming ideas for a fundraiser/activity. Last week the LDSSA had a spectacular international dance night with 4 different Multicultural clubs serving food, and various international groups performing music. Hundreds of people came and there was lots of dancing...it was awesome. We might do something like unto that activity, but I was wondering if anyone had other ideas of cultural and diverse things they have been to, that were a lot of fun. The diversity committee at USU is made up of Multicultural groups, International students, disabled students, religiously diverse students, gender diverse students, and politically diverse students. Any types of ideas would be wonderful! Thanks and I love you all!

Jill, I've emailed you the text of a column I wrote about ideas for celebrating diversity. The main ideas: teaching recent history and sociology of different cultures; having representatives of different cultures tell us their taboos; having representatives of different cultures tell jokes mocking themselves.
Also, you may enjoy the comedy clip "Invocation and Native Narrative" by a comedian whose work I enjoy, Will Franken.http://www.willfranken.com/will-listen.html
