Ozarka's Diversity and Cultural Events Committee will host its 13th annual International Day on Monday, March 13. Ozarka students, faculty, staff, and the public are invited to participate in this enriching and educational event that will focus on the country and culture of Ukraine.
International Day 2023 is free to attend and will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium of the John E. Miller Education Complex. Dr. Kateryna Pitchford, a native of Ukraine, and Professor of Business at Central Baptist College will be the guest lecturer. Following Dr. Pitchford's presentation, the Ozarka College Culinary Arts department will provide samplings of international cuisine, including dishes common in Ukraine.
The Ozarka College Diversity and Cultural Events Committee is committed to providing diverse and cultural experiences and opportunities for the College community, establishing an environment in which greater intellectual development can occur. The Committee advocates practices that bind peoples and cultures, specifically, encouraging inclusiveness, discouraging acts of insensitivity and disrespect, and seeking commonalities while understanding differences.
