Culture In...

Culture In… is a series of online micro-learning events designed to highlight the ways in which various unique elements of culture promote a sense of community and belonging.

The Culture In… series offers cultural topics within four subject areas:

  • Culture In...Food

  • Culture In...Wellness & Life
  • Culture In...Music

Fall Opening Space


Join the Office of Global Health and the TTU Vernacular Music Center this spring for another edition of the series: Opening Space

Opening Space is a Zoom-based series, co-hosted by the TTUHSC Office of Global Health and the TTU Vernacular Music Center, that elevates unheard voices and emphasizes representation, agency, empowerment, and inclusion. The series seeks to create opportunity for dialogues by and among underrepresented groups, acknowledging sources of silencing and affirming our shared connections.  

In each event we will promote conversation among individuals – students, faculty, staff, and community partners – who specialize in the arts, humanities, and STEM topics, and who situate themselves within underrepresented identities and experiences. By sharing a dialog between and across their fields of expertise and lived histories, we highlight the bridges and points of connection between and among our campus community members.


Upcoming Fall themes: 

    • Opening Space - Coping with a Wired World: Social Media and Community
      • Wednesday, September 18, 2024, 12-1 PM
      • Panelists: TBD
      • via Zoom
