Programs & Events
Center for Race, Equity, and Identity has sponsored, cosponsored, and supported an array of educational, cultural, political, activist, and social programs. Some examples of current and on-going programs are listed below:
The first Tuesday of every month, CREI features food from a different culture for the community to taste. The Center has held Tasty Tuesday events to provide a space for learning about relationships between culture and food.
Understanding and Challenging Racism Workshops. The workshops are a white affinity space designed to have honest conversations about the history of racism, whiteness, power, and privilege.
Summoning the Village: Affinity Spaces
Various affinity spaces for processing, healing, reflection as a community.
LGBTQIA Luncheons & Gatherings
A monthly affinity space exclusively for self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual, two spirit, and same gender loving students, faculty, and staff to be in community with one another.
Lavender Ceremony is an annual celebration conducted on numerous campuses to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual students and to acknowledge their achievements and contributions to the college. Graduating students, including undergraduates and graduates are invited to take part in the celebration, which occurs each year the week prior to the college-wide commencement events
Donning of the Kente Cloth Ceremony
A rite of passage, rooted in African tradition, “in which seniors [of color] recognize loved ones or mentors who have been instrumental in their success” (Ross, 2009). During the intimate ceremony, graduating seniors will be donned with a stole of kente, a fabric native to Ghana reserved for special occasions, and acts as a visual history for the wearer’s own cultural ethos.
Goucher has several comprehensive education and financial assistance programs to help our students succeed.
The Maryland Scholars Program is a four-year education and financial assistance program for first-generation Maryland residents from under-served socio-economic backgrounds who exhibit intellectual promise, motivation, and scholarship.
The Phoenix Scholars Program is a four-year program for first generation and/or low income students aimed to provide substantive and committed support while attending Goucher.
