Campus Wide Tunnel of Oppression
University Commons Auditorium
Wednesday, March 25, 4pm – Thursday, March 26, 2015, 7pm

We are setting up what is known as a Tunnel of Oppression, which is a diversity awareness program that walks people through to open their eyes to the impact of diversity issues that are still prevalent today.

The room would be divided into 7 smaller rooms within the space. Each room represents a different form of a ism that is still prevalent in society today. Some of these include ageism, sexism, racism, etc.

As people walk through they will be immersed in a room that treats them as if they are the minority of that category. This experience opens their eyes to what people in this category face on a daily basis.

For the Sacred Heart Campus Wide version we need to set up the night before to make sure everything is in order. We will use pipe and drape from campus operations to divide up the room into 7 sections.

Once that is set up each room will need to be set up to represent the different topic we are addressing. It will be a combination of audio, visual imagery in the form of posters, videos, and words, as well as students that may participate.

Res Life in addition with student activities, the counseling center, different major offices, and student groups will be in participation for the set up and walking through of students through this project.

Our tentative schedule to begin the tunnel is 10:00am on March 26th and have it continue until about 3:30/4:00pm to allow for maximum exposure for the campus.

After this we will breakdown the event in time for the next group to utilize the space.
