Exploring Identity

AUx is a huge step in a positive direction.

I've been a student peer leader in the AUx2 course [on race, identity, and inclusion]. I love the class discussions because, with issues of identity and culture, the conversations can go in a wide variety of directions. AUx is a huge step in a positive direction, eventually having all first-year students required to come face-to-face and learn in a safe environment. At AU, I think people become more self-aware and more aware of people who are not like them. Students hopefully learn to step outside their own experiences and understand other points of view.
