EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's American Ethnic Coordinating Office is presenting the Dialogue on Diversity Program. The program attracts students from across the university's campus to discuss issues of pluralism and inclusion.
Student participants will meet once a month for a three- to four-hour seminar, screening and discussion of a film or documentary addressing ethnic, gender, sexual orientation and religious differences. All the students submit response papers, which are collected and posted on the Internet at http://www.uwec.edu/admin.aeco.
All meetings will take place at 7 p.m. in the American Ethnic Coordinating Office Program Center, Old Library 2138. The dates and films for the fall semester are as follows:
  • Monday, Oct. 11: "American Me," a film that examines the cycle of violence in an East Los Angeles community.

  • Monday, Nov. 15: "Smoke Signals," a film that examines the quest of two American Indians across the country.

  • Monday, Dec. 6: "The Killing Fields," a film that examines the experiences of the Southeast Asian people under a totalitarian regime.
