The Student Leadership program presents: Diversity According to Family Guy and South Park with Matt Glowacki. Many times, TV imitates life, and then life begins to imitate TV. Programs operating on the fringes of societal acceptance often have a more developed, logical, and inclusive view of our society.

Matt uses pop culture, news media, and of course Family Guy and South Park clips to demonstrate the opportunities that arise to learn about diversity in everyday life. His interpretation of these popular cultural icons is engaging and encourages a fresh look at life around us. Matt will use hidden messages from both programs to illustrate diversity issues in our culture. Refreshments will be provided.
