The Campus & Community Dialogue on Race (CDOR) is an annual event at Cal Poly Humboldt. It invites students, staff, faculty, administrators, and community members to present and attend programs relating to racial justice and its intersections with all forms of oppression and resistance. Our aim is to create spaces and structures for reflection, analysis, dialogue, and positive strategies for change.

Students can earn a unit of credit in Critical Race, Gender, & Sexuality Studies "ES 317- Campus & Community Dialogue on Race". You don't need to be a CRGS student to enroll in this class, we welcome everyone! Check out our list of CDOR events below.

Celebrating the 25th year of CDOR, this year's Dialogue will take place from October 23rd (Mon) to October 27th (Fri). The vision of the Campus & Community Dialogue on Race is to achieve racial, social, and environmental justice. We're dedicated to promoting and facilitating change by engaging a diverse range of individuals and viewpoints. Our goal is to explore the impact of racism and its intersections with all forms of oppression.
