In Context

What is In Context?

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in this quarterly open-discussion series to talk about race, diversity, and reconciliation.

Finding yourself and learning about others [In] the greater [Context] of history, the Bible, and societal systems.

Join us through discovery, community, and engaging conversations, as we unpack and unveil some realities of race relations, its intersections and impact on our stories.


In Context is a Catalyst ASSP program that meets every quarter for six weeks. There are two to three groups per quarter that meet over a selection of the following content:

  • Deconstruction of Race - This discussion group will learn more about the construct of “race” in America and examine its legacy and relevance in society today.
  • White Privilege - This discussion group will provide an introduction toward understanding the foundations of white privilege and its relevance.

Fall Quarter 2020
