Embrace is a team of six first-year students from CMU ETC. Working with our client, Ayana Ledford, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Dietrich College, we will be creating an interactive and immersive live orientation experience for incoming students to the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences at CMU. Our goal is to introduce the concept of cultural humility, to help them to become self-reflexive about their identities, and to prepare them for the upcoming diverse and inclusive college life. After the experience, participants should recognize and value cultural differences, realize that no culture is better than other, and feel more comfortable meeting and interacting with people from different cultural backgrounds. In the future, the project could be scaled to reach all the students, faculty, and staff on and beyond campus.

Team Members: Amber Griffith, Shicai He, Shan Jiang, Chao Li, Jeffrey (Chia-Wei) Liu, Xiaoying (Alexa) Wang
