The Dr. Shirley S. Seaton Cultural Awareness Series illuminates various cultural perspectives to help sharpen an understanding of the ways in which we are all interconnected. These events provide exciting opportunities to engage the campus community in outside-the-classroom learning.

This year the Series goes local.

The mission of the Series is to explore and examine current cultural issues.  We are engaging in discussions that celebrate diversity as an integral part of our lived experience in Cleveland, Ohio.  What better way to exemplify the mission of the Series than with local authors, lecturers, broadcasters, experts, and celebrities.  Join us at our next event!
