Is It Really Necessary to Feel Uncomfortable?


Professor Medina-VilariƱo’s Cultural Conversation, students discussed whether they thought it was necessary to feel uncomfortable in order to grow as an individual in a society filled with diversity. They engaged in activities where they explored reasons for why people avoid talking about certain topics. At the end of the Conversation, students left with an understanding of how having conversations that challenge our values and perceptions, can further enrich our cultural knowledge.
