Diversity & Inclusion
Queens is committed to an academic culture that promotes inclusion, diversity, equity, and access to realize its mission to "to provide educational experiences that transform students' lives and foster personal and professional success." An insightful view of diversity acknowledges that human identities and qualities such as age, race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, heritage, national origin, class, language, and ability influence one's world view, life choices, and interpersonal relations. Our commitment to living and succeeding in a changing world challenges us to develop cultural humility and to find common ground with those unlike ourselves.

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
