A Look at How Politics and Diversity Influence Each Other

 New episode “Exploring Diversity” premieres on the UA+ website and on the UA Channel

Tucson, Arizona -  April 22, 2013 – Everyone experiences the diversity of cultures on the campus of the University of Arizona, but can diversity potentially impact political views? UA+ Episode 3, “Exploring Diversity,” showcases stories about the different cultures and politics around campus. Stories include International Friends, a campus organization that provides foreign students with a family-like support system, and a feature on the Arizona Model United Nations (AzMUN,) a UA-hosted bilingual high school conference with students from border states in the U.S. and Mexico that simulates real world UN debates. The new episode features an interview with Kate Kenski, Associate Professor of Communication at the UA, and author of “The Obama Victory: How Media, Money and Message Shaped the 2008 Election.” Kenski explains the importance of political communication in an election. “Exploring Diversity” also takes you through UA’s Institute for LGBT Studies, one of the few academic entities in the country that focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender research, and lastly, UA’s symposium to introduce the new Hip-Hop minor. These five stories highlight how culture and diversity on campus affect our political views. Watch “Exploring Diversity” on the UA+ website and on UA+ Facebook page
