Big Idea: UT Students Open Dialogue on Race and Religion

Big Idea: Dialogue

Seniors Jayanni Webster, Abbey Schaplowsky, and Corie Fine were working together on a class project when they realized how diverse their own lives were—and how the campus as a whole is full of thousands of individuals, each with their own differences. From this idea came “Dialogue: A Conversation on Race and Religion at UT,” a film screening and panel discussion devised as a way to create a safe, inclusive way for students to talk about different social issues.

UT Students Organize Campus-wide Discussion of Big Issues

When Jayanni Webster teamed up with fellow seniors Abbey Schaplowsky and Corie Fine on a social work class project, they had no clue their ideas would turn into a university-funded diversity program. The culmination of their efforts is “Dialogue: A Conversation on Race and Religion at UT,” a film screening and panel discussion to be held at 6:00 p.m. on March 6 in the Black Cultural Center.
