Student of Color Luncheon

By Robert Berman in Campus

Clark’s Multicultural Student Affairs program will host its quarterly Student of Color Luncheon May 15.

Doors will open at the Penguin Student Lounge at 11:30 a.m., and the program will start at noon.

Clark has held the luncheon every quarter, except Summer quarter, for more than six years, said multicultural retention manager Felisciana Peralta. The event aims to build a community for students of color and their advocates, she said.

The program features a faculty speaker each quarter. According to Peralta, the speakers talk about many issues for students of color and have covered subjects from racism to being the only student of color in a classroom.

This quarter, Clark professor and band director Rich Inouye will take the stage. Inouye, a second generation Japanese American, said he will speak about “stereotypes and assimilation.”

Lunch will be provided and the event is open to all students.
