Critical Encounters is a college-wide initiative intended to synchronize

conversations between the school and the community, in an ongoing dialogue, around a central socially and culturally relevant issue each academic year.

CRITICAL ENCOUNTERS: Rights, Radicals + Revolutions examines how the arts and media provoke change in individuals, collectives and institutions. Rights, Radicals, + Revolutions challenges students as well as our larger community to investigate how systems of hierarchy and oppression are critiqued and disrupted. From the spoken word to scientific intervention, we seek to provoke debate, encourage civic engagement and promote actions of social justice.
