Have a Happy Summer!
MOSAIC does not have any events planned this summer, but we'll be back in the fall! Below are the events we put on yearly. Make sure you keep an eye out for new events each semester. Even though we don't put any events on during summer, the office is still open, so drop by and say hi sometime.
A Multicultural Affair
These once-a-semester gatherings are a celebration of diversity in all forms. Our first Multicultural Affair was held in September of 2013 and was a smash hit. The recorded attendance was almost double what was expected. Our next Affair will be held in February of 2014.
Coming Out Week
National Coming Out Week is the week of October 11th. We host a variety of events throughout the week, including Coming Out Stories, Drag 101, and a Guess Who's Gay panel. Over 250 people attended the events at during this year's coming out week celebrations, and we're hoping that next year is even bigger.
World AIDS Day
December 1st was World AIDS Day. In 2012, we were fortunate enough to host 4 panels of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt here at UCCS. This year we were able to get 4 panels again. They were displayed between Dec. 2 - Dec. 5. Our office always has events planned near that day, so make sure you watch the website for more info.
Religious Diversity Event
The LGBT Resource Center and M.O.S.A.I.C. are teaming up with The Center for Religious Diversity and Public Life at UCCS to present our first "Speed Dating with God" event. The event will be held in the University Center - more information will be forthcoming as the event nears.
There are several ethnic clubs on campus, including the Latin Student Union, the Black Student Union, Asian Pacific Islander Student Union, and the Hawaiian club, among others. To get more involved on campus with any of these clubs, you can check out their Facebook pages, or their Mountain Lion Connect pages.
M.O.S.A.I.C. offers a first-year mentorship program for minority freshmen. You can be paired on the basis of ethnicity, major, native language, sexuality, hobbies, veteran status, disability status or any other criteria that you'd like. Be aware that we may not always be able to match you based on your first choice.
