Conversations on Diversity- Troops to College

Wednesday March 25th @ 12:00pm in BMU 210.

The Chico State Student Veteran Organization, in partnership with Disability Support Services and the Office of Diversity, will be facilitating and speaking at a panel discussion on Wednesday March 25th @ 12:00pm in BMU 210. Please show support by attending and engaging in the conversation.

The Conversations on Diversity series (COD) focuses on the complexities of group and individual identities and how they influence one another. The gatherings provide a safe space for members of the campus community to consider the often sensitive issues surrounding identity. In providing a forum for the many voices on our campus to be heard, the hope is that, through education and conversation, there can be enlightenment, understanding, and acceptance. The Chico State Student Veteran Organization will be discussing our identities as student veterans and our experiences transitioning from the military to college.

Women in Combat: Lioness Documentary Screening

Wednesday March 25th @ 7:00pm in BMU 304. Free! For more info, call Wes 530-592-9310

The Chico State Student Veteran Organization, in partnership with the Associated Students’ Women’s Center, is presenting a free screening of the award-winning documentary about women in combat; Lioness. Lioness tells the story of a group of female Army support soldiers who were part of the first program in American history to send women into direct ground combat. Told through intimate accounts, journal excerpts, archival footage, as well as interviews with military commanders, the film follows five Lioness women who served together for a year in Iraq. With captivating detail, this probing documentary reveals the unexpected consequences that began by using these Army women to defuse tensions with local civilians, but resulted in their fighting alongside Marine combat units in the streets of Ramadi. Together the women's candid narratives describing their experiences in Iraq and scenes from their lives back home form a portrait of the emotional and psychological effects of war from a female point of view.
