Human Library Wrap-Up
A HUGE Shout-out to our "Human Books"
who made last week's Human Library event a success!
43 students, staff and faculty who wanted to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender, disability and other aspects of their lives shared their personal stories with over 400 students at our 2 day Human Library.
The Human Library provided the opportunity for the Fairfield community to share and understand the experiences of others in our community through one on one conversations. Was it successful? You be the judge:
- 97% of the over 400 "readers" agreed or strongly agreed that “Through my conversation(s), my eyes were opened to someone’s experiences that I was unaware of before.”
- 98% of the 43 "books" agreed or strongly agreed that “Through my conversation(s), I learned something new about myself that surprised me.”
Fairfield University's 2016 Human Library is co-sponsored by DiMenna-Nyselius Library, the Office of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs, Center for Faith and Public Life, College of Arts and Sciences, Counseling and Psychological Services, Academic Affairs and Student Affairs. Thanks to our Marketing and Communications department for their support of this project.
