Salt Lake Community College will host its fourth annual Diversity Dinner on Wednesday, March 6 at 6 p.m. in the Oak Room of the Taylorsville Redwood Campus Student Center.
The free dinner event will consist of round table discussions.
Students can RSVP for the event here.
Seats will be assigned at random, so students who come with a date or friends won’t necessarily be seated together, which gives them a chance to meet others of diverse backgrounds.
“People come here [to SLCC] from different backgrounds,” said Doctor Abio Ayeliya, coordinator of Leadership and Diversity. “If this world was to be one language, one way of doing things, things would be boring.”
Ayeliya is orchestrating the event. He said that diversity is in everything, and events like the Diversity Dinner can help bridge the gap between different cultures and lifestyles on campus.
Ayeliya believes SLCC should be treated like a family.
“When you are in a family and you don’t talk about things, how can you live peaceful when you don’t know one another?” asked Ayeliya.
