The Whole Week
The Race Experience Kiosk will be available for all of R.E.A.C.H Week. The Race Experience Kiosk will be placed in Irwin Library on the main floor. Students will be able to take photographs of themselves at the kiosk, the kiosk will then create photographs of that individual in four different races.
Over the last few years, SGA’s REACH Board has continued to program larger and more traditional programming for students here at Butler. In beginning with the Taste of Diversity Series, this has grown to become one of the most recognized aspects of SGA’s diversity programming efforts. Every month, a different country from around the world is highlighted where typical cuisine is shared and an educational experience is provided through speakers and interactive activities. These events are almost always considered to be Butler Cultural Requirements where students can receive credit for attending.
REACH Board is also proud to sponsor Butler’s Mardi Gras celebration along with the campus Diversity Center and other diversity-focused student organizations. This program emphasizes the New Orleans culture and helps to include students throughout campus with a live jazz band, art creation areas, and a wide offering of food.
Lastly, this board collaborates with other groups in SGA to provide large-scale programming that will be attractive to all students. In December of 2014, REACH and Program Boards co-sponsored the campus speaker Laverne Cox, the star of Orange is the New Black. The event was held in the campus Schrott Center with over 400 students in attendance to hear about her powerful story of love, acceptance, and change.
