The Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive production created by the Social Justice Scholars, Resident Assistants, and other dedicated staff and students. The Tunnel aims to highlight contemporary social justice issues and to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, micro aggressions, and the “isms” faced by numerous communities in today’s society.  Participants are guided through a series of scenes that aim to educate and challenge them to think critically about issues of oppression. At the end of the tour, participants are provided with the opportunity to discuss their experiences with each other through a guided facilitation led by a faculty or staff member.
