Together We Ball: Kickball Edition

On Sept. 21, 2018, kickball was the game for Together We Ball. Together We Ball was launched by the BGSU Office of Multicultural Affairs in partnership with the Campus Police Division in 2016 as a friendly basketball tournament designed to build a bridge between communities of color and local law enforcement. The success of those events prompted the expansion of the program this year to include kickball, which will provide more interaction between the groups and extend an opportunity to include those who don’t play basketball, according to Sheila Brown, interim director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Spectators cheered on the teams, enjoyed the music provided by D.J. Silk, and won BGSU swag at the event held at the Perry Field House.

Multicultural Talent Showcase

The Office of Multicultural Affairs' Multicultural Talent Showcase displayed the artistry of BGSU students on September 26, 2018. The students came from all across the university and from different disciplines, as well as backgrounds. Their performances were not always related to their field of study at BGSU. These performances illustrate how we can use art to promote diversity and inclusion. BG24 News Anchor / Reporter Dominic Ferrante gave a behind the scenes look at this event:
