On March 25, the Office of International Services led a group of international students to the Museum of Tolerance, located in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of Los Angeles. Throughout the visit, students explored the topics of prejudice and tolerance as they relate to our society today and the lessons we can learn from history. During a guided tour of the museum, students were challenged to think critically about biases they may have, as well as prejudices they have faced, in order to better understand how intolerance can exist and thrive in today’s world.
As they learned about the history of the Holocaust and many of the victims’ tragic stories, students experienced a thought-provoking journey through time. It truly was a valuable experience as international and domestic students continue to navigate complex issues that affect each and every person in today’s globalized society.
