Salad Bowl Series

The salad bowl concept suggests that the integration of the many different cultures and diversity factors combine like a salad, as opposed to the more traditional notion of a melting pot.  SUA Salad Bowl Series will address issues related to race, gender, age, disabilities, physical appearance, nationality, and multiculturalism.  Cultural food sample will also be shared during this lunch time experience.  Due to limited space students and staff/faculty must preregister.
