Join Director Lee Mun Wah for a screening of his film, "If These Halls Could Talk," followed by a community diversity dialogue facilitated by Lee Mun Wah. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and any community member is welcome.
"If These Halls Could Talk" shows what diversity is like on campuses across the country through discussions among eleven different college students, who gathered at a retreat in the summer of 2010. The students shared the frustration and anguish of trying to be understood and acknowledged on campuses where faculty and students are predominantly white. Their stories are starkly emotional and raw, filled with incredible tenderness, courage, and pain. The issues that they challenge us to look at are equally provocative, begging to be heard and confronted. If you have ever wondered why students and faculty of color are leaving our campus, if you have difficulties understanding students from other cultures, if you don’t know what to say or do when a conflict occurs as it relates to a diversity issue, then "If These Halls Could Talk" will help model for you what it will take to have conversations on diversity that are both authentic and life-changing. This film provides a glimpse into what is still missing and what is needed if we are ever going to come together in our classrooms, on our campus, and in our community.
Lee Mun Wah is a Chinese American filmmaker, author, educator, community therapist, and master diversity facilitator. Oprah Winfrey featured a one-hour special on his life and most famous film about racism, "The Color of Fear." He founded and directs StirFry Seminars & Consulting, which provides educational tools and workshops on cross-cultural communication, mindful facilitation, and conflict mediation techniques. He was a resource specialist and counselor in the San Francisco Unified School District for over 25 years. He later became a consultant to private schools, working with students that had severe learning and behavioral issues.
Human Resources, the Undergraduate Student Senate, the Professional Student Senate, and the Division of Social Sciences sponsor Lee Mun Wah's day-and-a-half visit to Pacific University. Additional coordination and support for his workshop for faculty and staff has been provided by the Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, and Academic Affairs.

"their new model depends on extensive institutional change, new ways to mix and leverage different disciplinary configurations and connections, organize new problem- and project-based collaborations, build new relationships between academic interests and the research needs and imperatives of the private sector, all to create what they call a "complex and adaptive knowledge enterprise""
