Half-hour tours of the “Tunnel of Oppression” challenged the Penn College community to reflect on such topics as homophobia, racism and bullying on Wednesday evening. The interactive and immersive event, held in the Breuder Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center, guided participants through a series of scenes followed by the opportunity for them to discuss their experiences and put their newfound knowledge to use in everyday life. The presentation was sponsored by the college’s Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, Residence Life and Counseling Services.
