Lunch-N-Learn Student Development Discussion: All too often student’s historical perspective of Black History Month focuses on the obstacles and struggles of people of color. Throughout these discussions, our Black History Month Committee has created a forum that highlights the positives, strengths, and talents of entrepreneurs, physicians, and educators of color. These discussions will give students the opportunity to engage with successful individuals of color from the state of Maine and surrounding region. Our goal is for students to receive advice and build real-world applications that can help them to succeed in areas with diversity demographics resembling Orono and similar communities in Maine. Not only does this aid our students in their own professional development, discussions such as these offer an opportunity for our community to create an environment which builds on diversity, economic opportunities, and career development after graduation.
