Two days after the DePauw Day of Inclusion, Prindle hosted the “Debrief with Desserts” event to continue the conversations started at the dialogue itself. It was a lunch hour of conversation and delicious desserts from Almost Home, and I had the opportunity to interview a few of the attendees.
Overall, I was thrilled to see that many people came away with a fairly positive impression of the day, and even more excited to see that the consensus was to continue forward in the same direction: to keep the conversation going. In the words of freshman Caesar Tobar-Acosta, “Just talk about it.” I was also humbled and pleased to know that no one felt the problems of campus climate here at DePauw were solved; rather, the day was the first step on a long road.
