Center for Diversity & Unity

soul or science

September 18 | Noon - 1:15 p.m. | Union 232

This event will help students explore the topic of the soul. The event will discuss the controversial beliefs of religion and the soul. A debate will be organized to help discuss both sides of the topic.


Lonald Wishom, WSUSA VP for Diversity 2011-12 created Taboo Talks because, in his words, "I think that our country has reached a point where everyone is so eager to claim that we are in a post oppression society that it's hard to discuss issues of oppression. It's rare to engage in dialogue about issues such as race, sexuality, religion and politics without worrying about being viewed negatively by people with differing views; this results in a lack of these discussions and a lack of understanding differences. I envisioned Taboo Talks being a safe place to discuss differences in ideas in an effort to inform and educate WSU students on different views."

The Center for Diversity & Unity looks forward to supporting the continuation of this program with each new WSUSA VP for Diversity as we seek to establish connection and build community at Weber State, in Utah and across the globe.



These events are free and open to the public.
