Student Racial Justice Initiative: A Series of Reflective Dialogues Around Race

As many of us have been awakened to racial injustice and inequity in our society, NSCC and Salem State University is offering an opportunity for students to engage in reflective dialogue based on their affinity group. These reflective discussions will challenge students to re-examine themselves and social norms by allowing us to learn and grow through facilitated dialogue. This will be a 4-part series, once a month, beginning the end of September. The sessions will last approximately 2 hours. The first session will take place on Friday September 25th from 11:00AM-1:00PM, meeting information will be sent out via confirmation of the Google form. If you are interested in participating please complete this form by Wednesday September 23rd.  If you have any questions, please reach out to the Office of Student Engagement at

We hope you can join us.


Fall Book Club

As many of us have been awakened to racial injustice and inequity in our society, OSE is offering an opportunity for introspection and re-examining ourselves and our social norms by allowing us to learn through books that address these inequities.

Two books have been selected: Waking Up White by Debbie Irving and  Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  The Book Club is open to Students, Faculty and Staff.  If you are interested in participating, please email us at  with your book selection by September 25.  OSE does have limited copies of the books for students.  If you are in need of a book, please include your mailing address in the email and we will send it right out.

Beginning the week of October 5, we will meet weekly to have facilitated discussion around these topics.  You can choose one book or both!  We look forward to reading, learning, listening and growing!
