Spotlight: Putting Idealism To Work
The "Spotlight: Putting Idealism To Work" display is a celebration of individuals and groups that impact the lives of the community in a positive way. By being social justice advocates or by sharing their culture and traditions with others the community slowly changes into a more inclusive place to live.
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
- Mahatma Gandhi
The UI Cultural Houses and Resource Center managed by the Office of Student Life are fundamental in bringing to light issues that are important to African Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Latinos and Native Americans and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community. The “Spotlight Series” displays are meant to connect the library to the UI cultural houses and resource center. We encourage the UI community to explore the people and organizations represented in this display.
