UNCG’s First Tunnel of Oppression

Posted on Monday, January 26th, 2015 by Casandra Fletcher under OMA Webpage.

 

Coming to campus March 2015

What is the Tunnel of Oppression?

The Tunnel of Oppression (TOP) is an interactive event that takes place on a number of college campuses each year in order to highlight contemporary issues of oppression. The event originated as a diversity program in 1993 at Western Illinois University and has since expanded nationwide, introducing students to concepts such as power, privilege, and oppression.

Tunnel of Oppression participants will walk through various rooms that focus on a particular social justice issue with an assigned tour guide. While the situations encountered may make some uncomfortable, the Tunnel is designed to engage emotions and make participants think critically about what is experienced in the room. The scenes that take place in the Tunnel are not meant to be representative of all people who have experienced oppression. Instead, they are intended to portray one example of how oppression may be experienced.

What rooms will be featured at UNCG’s Tunnel?

UNCG will feature four different rooms in its first ever Tunnel of Oppression! Featured rooms at other institutions have included the following: social class, physical disability, body image, homophobia, transphobia, religious oppression, relationship violence, racial profiling, and immigration.

How can I or my student organization get involved?

The Tunnel of Oppression requires a lot of volunteers in order to make the event run smoothly. We are currently looking for assistance in a number of capacities! To learn more about how you can get involved, please consider attending one of the following:
