On May 3rd, 2016, the Library participated in an event created by Professor Christine Martorana of the Writing Program, and Jeremiah Jerkowitz of the LGBTQ Resource Center called “When They Are One: Language Practices at CSI”. The event invited participating departments to create an interactive activity designed to engage students in language inclusive practices, and the tables were set up in the 1P atrium. The stated goal of the event was to “prompt a dialogue on campus regarding the ways in which our written and spoken language can better reflect and respect the diversity of our community” and also to “give students the tools to be more critical, reflective, and purposeful language users.”
