Educational “House of Privilege”

Starting Nov. 13 and ending Nov. 15, the Office of Intercultural Engagement will host the third annual House of Privilege, an experiential event where participants explore different ways in which privilege is experienced in our society. House of Privilege uses an approach of touring a “home” to highlight privileged experiences and realities people often don’t recognize.

The House of Privilege will be hosted in the Office of Intercultural Engagement, EUC Room 62. The “Open House” is scheduled from Tuesday, Nov. 13 until Thursday, Nov. 15. Participants are able to complete a self-guided tour at any time or attend a facilitated tour.

If your class or student organization would like to visit the House of Privilege as a group, please reserve a tour in place of attending the Open House tour. Facilitated tours and discussion will last approximately 45 minutes and reserved tours will start every hour the House of Privilege is open.

This experiential education program allows attendees to participate in a self-reflection activity as they navigate through a museum highlighting identity-based privileges. Additionally, attendees are able to complete a self-guided tour at any time or participate in facilitated tour and debrief at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m. or 7 p.m. each day.
