As you guide yourself through this multi-sensory exhibition, you will explore the issues of power, privilege, diversity and inclusion. Staff members will be on hand to assist with a facilitated debrief.
This year, the Office of Residence Life focuses on how the legal system, government and society discriminates against trans people and, specifically, trans people of color.
This immersive exhibition is designed to increase awareness and education literacy of our differences in a format that combines both active and passive learning elements. Most importantly, Tunnel is designed to make you THINK—about the privileges and power one has or does not have, the privileges others do or do not have and what you can do about it all.
More about Tunnel of Oppression
At BGSU, our goal is to encourage students to think critically about issues of diversity, power, privilege and social justice. We want students to look at the world through others’ lenses, attempt to understand their perspectives and help us in building “an inclusive, safe and respectful community”* for all members of the BGSU Community. By encouraging “an awareness of diverse thoughts, ideas and experiences on our campus in which our community members are empowered to use their voices and be heard”*, we are better preparing our students for their roles in their future communities for generations to come.
