On October 21st the LRC hosted the Living Library and it was a big thumbs up from all who participated.
The Legal Research Center invited students, staff, and faculty to challenge their preconceptions during the event. A Living Book is a person who has chosen to be a public representative of a certain group usually subject to prejudice or stereotyping. They are pretty brave to stand by their convictions and be willing to discuss their values with others. Living Library is a great way to advance the USD diversity initiative and demonstrate that the local community is diverse on many levels that might not be readily apparent without engagement between people.

Who knows? Maybe they will do it again! The Vista did a nice piece on the event. Read it here.
