Diversity Days at NU undergrad have been exclusive events, so I don't appreciate you calling me naive, when I have first hand experience of diversity days not including vanilla AF people. Some people, like me, come from different backgrounds, where they aren't used to getting invited to things like this. Diversity events in high school (in the midwest) were also exclusive minority events. Would have appreciated a bit more tact on your end.
Also, good catch Blue664. I didn't notice the director's title was diversity education and outreach. I imagine that would suck if there was only one opportunity to self-identify, and you missed the boat.
Just because they're meant to be exclusive doesn't mean they're going to turn away anyone else who wants to attend and contribute. If you want to measure e-peens, the Diversity events at Yale were targeted for diverse students exclusively, yet remained opened to anyone who wanted to attend because while diverse students should be recognized and celebrated, progress cannot be truly measured until everyone takes part in the process.
