Asian Occasion (AO) is a show in late fall that is hosted by the Asian American Alliance and includes a number of performances from the Chinese Student Association, Japanese Student Association, Korean Student Association, the Albany State Indian Alliance, and Liga Filipina. AO is always a blast so it’s definitely possible to have a show that would involve multiple cultural groups. To promote diversity and differentiate it from AO, this new show should be open to all groups – religious, special interest, social and business frats/sororities. The more the merrier.
Alternatively, you could offer the $4000 as prize money for a contest open to students and faculty: any department or student organization that showcases diversity on campus and display efforts to improve it would be eligible to win and 200$ prize. If the guidelines/requirements are minimal, I think this could be a good approach because you could stir up a lot of small efforts on campus – if word spreads and the groups are interested. Competition often spices things up a bit so it could just get interesting….
