The Intercultural Dialogues Committee would like to thank everyone who shared #1thing at the March 22 open mic event celebrating #medaillecommunities! Faculty, staff and students celebrated the diversity of Medaille’s communities through the sharing of poetry, music, stories, opinions, personal experiences and cultural traditions. Special thanks to the library for hosting. Thanks, also, to Dr. Lori Quigley for serving as the MC and for opening the event with a Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address.
