All In. All Year. is the Center for Inclusion & Cross Cultural Engagement’s approach to cross cultural engagement programs and events that allows for continuing conversations about multiple identities and intersectionality throughout the academic year!
Are You Ready? Dialogue Series
The AYR dialogues series seeks to provide space for participants to learn about challenging topics, listen to fellow campus and community members share their perspectives and knowledge, and take away skills and practices they can implement for themselves and within their communities at the University of Mississippi and beyond.
We aim for an informal setting in the hope that attendees will be honest, vulnerable, and humble to ensure productive and respectful dialogue can occur. We aim to emphasize the value of both academic research and personal lived experiences. The series focuses on topics of diversity, inclusion, equity, identity, social justice, and more. Upon the conclusion of the event, we call on one another to continue building our awareness and knowledge to lead us to action on creating a more socially just community.
