Multicultural Day Strengthens Campus Culture and Diversity  

Student working on calligraphyStudents and faculty are invited to attend Seton Hall's annual Multicultural Day hosted by the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures on Thursday, April 26, 2018. The event is being held as part of the 22nd annual Petersheim Academic Exposition, a weeklong celebration of the academic achievements and interests of both undergraduate and graduate students.

The purpose of Multicultural Day is to celebrate the different cultures, customs and nuances of the Seton Hall community to advance the University's mission of facilitating an inclusive environment for all students. Department Chair, Professor Dongdong Chen and Professor Michael Stone, Director of the Language Resource Center, are excited to present what the various programs in the Department have to offer and the accomplishments they have achieved.

"Multicultural Day is an opportunity to showcase the work of students in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. It also serves to remind students of the value of learning a foreign language to their future careers and how it enriches their understanding of other people and cultures," said Professor Stone. "Events will include music, poetry, videos, contests and samplings of food from around the world. We look forward to welcoming students to this cultural immersion program and encourage them to engage with their peers and faculty throughout the day."
