(The following is excerpted directly from the June Nutshell of OSUAA)
"We are strengthened by nurturing and embracing individual differences."
The Ohio State Alumni Association has embraced diversity as one of its core values. In keeping with this idea, OSUAA has created a diversity programming grant for our alumni clubs and societies. Our diversity efforts focus on gender, racial/ethnic differences, and sexual orientation.
A wide range of programs are considered each year for the grant, but each recipient program reflects at least one of these ideas:
Following are the winners of this year's grants:
One of only five clubs nationwide, we were awarded our first Diversity Grant! On November 6, 2010, we will be partnering with The Lange Trust of the Sandusky Library. Lange will be sponsoring a concert, !VIVA! MEXICO Los Camperos de Nati Cano. Our Club has contracted with Nati Cano to present a pre-concert demo to cover the history of Mariachi as it relates to the history of Mexico, what mariachi is, its cultural significance, the instrumentation and how it differs from American instrumentation. A committee has been formed by our club comprised of all local high school and college Spanish teachers as well as the local Catholic churches to encourage the Latino population's interest and attendance at this event. More on our grant as the date of the concert nears.
