What is UnLearn Week?
Open to students, faculty and staff, UnLearn Week provides a safe, campus-wide forum for panel discussions, lectures, presentations and workshops that aim to increase self-awareness of deep-seated prejudices and stereotypes, encourage personal evaluation of attitudes and actions towards those with different cultural values, and increase knowledge of different cultures. UnLearn Week serves as an important co-curricular activity that serves to increase students’ experiential knowledge of God and themselves through exploring cultural awareness, attitude, knowledge and skills.
