Every month, TDC hosts diversity dialogues where members of the Trinity community can come together to discuss and learn about topics pertaining to social justice and inclusion. Past dialogue topics have included: "How to be an ally", "Anti-Blackness in the south Asian community" and "Iran Dialogue: What's up with the WWIII memes?"
Along with our dialogues, TDC also hosts a collaboration every month with fellow student organizations! Past collaborations have included a dialogue about Palestine with the Muslim Student Association (MSA), Primavera Fest with Trinity University Latino Association (TULA), and a lecture about whiteness outdoors followed by a day hike with Outdoor Recreation (OREC).
Friendsgiving is TDC's take on Thanksgiving that includes food from local vendors all over San Antonio. Students across campus are invited to celebrate friendship and diversity as we eat food from cultures all over the world!
Every year, TDC collaborates with the Diversity and Inclusion Office in getting Trinity students to join in celebrating MLK's legacy in San Antonio's annual MLK March (the largest one in America)! We direct students throughout the march and assist in educating students about its historic significance.
Spoken Word with BSU
To celebrate Black History Month, TDC works with BSU in creating a spoken word event where poets from all over San Antonio and student poets showcase their work while enjoying food from local vendors!
Diversity Week is TDC's busiest time of the year! Every April, TDC puts on a week of programming (which includes movie screenings, dialogues and interactive events) to celebrate diversity and inclusion which culminates in Taste of Diversity!
Taste of Diversity
Taste of Diversity is TDC's biggest event of the year! Every cultural organization participates in bringing food that represents their identity to create a giant potluck hosted on the Coates Esplanade! Student musicians also showcase their talents as the entire student body celebrates diversity and inclusion!
