The aim of the Pluralism and Diversity Program at CSI is to celebrate cultural diversity through events and programs that foster community, inclusion, understanding, and engagement within the CSI community. We are currently in the process of identifying and planning potential events for the Fall 2015 academic semester with emphasis on the categories listed below. Ideas and suggestions for events outside of these categories are always welcomed.

  • Hispanic Heritage Month (September/October)
  • Italian Heritage Month (October)
  • National Coming Out Day (October)
  • Diwali (November)
  • Native American Heritage Month (November)
  • Middle Eastern and North African Heritage Month (November)
  • World Aids Day (December)
  • Holidays (December)

We reach out to you at this time to ask for your participation and/or ideas for potential collaborations and events with the Pluralism and Diversity Program. If you have an idea for an event that coincides with an area of personal or academic research interest, know a member of the greater Staten Island community who you think we should invite to speak at an event, or if you have a new idea for an event on which to collaborate, please contact the Pluralism and Diversity Program at

We wish you a successful rest of the semester and thank you for supporting the College’s pluralism and diversity efforts.

We look forward to working with you.
