Event Description:
‘ETSU Privilege Walk’ Collaborative Project

The Multicultural Center and Slocumb Galleries in collaboration with The Counseling Center, Diversity
Educators, ETSU Votes, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Department of Art & Design and various
units and organizations invite students and the community to the ‘ETSU Privilege Walk’, every other
Thursdays, at 12 noon at the Multicultural Center. The focus on 'Social Justice and Politics on March 23, at 12 noon is facilitated by the Honors College Student Council and SGA Secretary of State Rana Elgazzar in conjunction with the '32nd positive/Negative National Juried Art Exhibition' at the Slocumb Galleries.

The Privilege Walk Collaborative aims to “discuss the complicated intersections of privileges and marginalization in non-confrontational and reflective ways.” Ultimately, the Privilege Walk project endeavors to “foster understanding, empathy, inclusion and celebration of diversity” among students and the diverse communities within and outside campus. With the aims to provide a platform for discourse to understand the complexities of ‘privilege’ and ‘marginalization’, in a safe, inclusive environment with no judgment to individual’s political
inclinations, the ETSU Privilege Walk endeavors to promote understanding, empathize and celebrate
diversity. Each week is focused on a specific topic, ranging from religion, race, gender, environment,
disability and social justice. After each Privilege Walk, a debrief session will be held to help process
each session, facilitated by the Counseling Center, Diversity Educators and Safe Zone trainers. Each
Privilege Walk is facilitated by a partner office or student organizations who have developed the
statements focused on specific issues. Please join us as we collectively pursue an enlightened, inclusive
and welcoming environment where people come first. The schedule is as follows:

March 23 – ‘Social Justice & Politics’ facilitated by SGA & Honors College Student Council

April 13 – ‘Environment & Economy’ facilitated by Department of Sustainability

April 27 – ‘Disability & Mental Health’ facilitated by

The ETSU Privilege Walk Collaborative is supported by the facilitating groups and the Department of
