Real Talk: Conversations Around Diversity

Real Talk gives students and other members of the SMU Community an opportunity to discuss current, relevant events and the impact they have on diversity, equality and social justice. Through collaborations with academic departments and other departments around the university, Multicultural Student Affairs creates space for open dialogue centered around awareness, education and with varying perspectives.
