The Immersive Stories program will offer participants a first-hand opportunity to gain more knowledge and understanding about multi-layered socio-cultural identities and lived experiences. This will contribute to an enhanced skillset that will help them to regularly check their personal, social and cultural assumptions, and manage quick conclusions and judgments. This in turn will contribute to our efforts to foster a diverse and inclusive College environment for students and faculty.
