Amplifying Voices in Discourse (AVID)

To amplify voices, engage in and elevate critical thinking, build community, and highlight domestic and international examples of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice across disciplines.


Amplifying Voices in Discourse

Welcome to the Amplifying Voices in Discourse (AVID) Resource Guide! 

What We Do | Through a collaboration with the NCU Library and University Diversity Committee, Amplifying Voices in Discourse (A.V.I.D.) served as a catalyst for discussing and engaging with crucial social issues experienced by the NCU academic community and beyond. This initiative encourages the NCU Community to engage in open conversation and critical scholarship, enhancing NCU’s mission to recognize and celebrate diversity through the intentional engagement of literature or other resources.

What to Expect | Every quarter, the AVID Committee will select a resource for discussion based on a pressing social issue. To accomplish our vision, AVID will provide opportunities for the NCU Community to participate in discussions about the resource and present research related to the chosen resource’s themes.
