Emphasis of this session
This session helps Christian college students to gain a biblical and effective approach to ethnic relations for their time on campus and future life and ministry. It lays a foundation for viewing ethnic diversity through the lens of Scripture and for dealing with ethnicity-related challenges in a way that is Christ-honoring and which builds unity rather than division.
The main characters in this session are Jeff and Mia. Both of them are first year students on the mostly-white campus of “Madison Christian University”. In Section A, Jeff is concerned by the ethnic divisions he observes on his campus. He tries to help but he receives pushback from both white students and students of color. In Sections B, Jeff learns about biblical ethnic relations when he joins the OneCampus Team–a group of students formed by the president to help deal with the ethnic divisions on campus. In Section C, Mia works with other students on the OneCampus team to help them deal with three difficult ethnicity-related situations: a student and her parents are upset over the school’s financial aid policy, students are complaining about the smell of Asian food on their floor, and tensions are flaring up in a dorm over political differences.

“Thank you for this class. I was one of those who has gotten tired of hearing all this “diversity” stuff, but this opened my eyes in several areas. It made me aware that I had made many assumptions about people and have not had the compassionate love of Christ in my heart towards others. I learned a lot and believe I will appreciate diversity even more and am more prepared to handle future tense situations. Thanks!”
From a professor using the session as a supplemental resource for her class… ”almost all the students in the class identified OneCampus as very helpful. Even the ones who were not eager to take the class in the first place. Thank you for helping to create such a useful and helpful tool.”
“This session was so helpful in teaching me how to approach ethnic relations on campus. I will have a few girls of different ethnicities in my unit this year and I definitely don’t want to ignore the issues that people often face regarding ethnicity! I want to approach people in the most loving and biblical manner and be a person who creates an atmosphere of honesty and unity.”
“I think that session is so incredibly rich and full of great stuff! … It’s such a good story line- very fun to read, and brings out so many good teaching tools! ”
“I really like this scenario. It’s hits home as a real life example of the type of conversations our students of color are having.”
“Wow!!! Absolutely Stellar videos!! Awesome!!!”
“It is an excellent resource. i would like to see our RAs, student leaders, faculty and staff all be able to work through it. I also think it gives an important perspective on the need to have the interest and involvement of the President and university leadership.”
“Very well done, well thought out, genuine work. Loved hearing perspective from multiple ethnicities. Loved it, it inspired me!”
“I really enjoyed how real students gave their opinions on race relations on campus. It really opened my eyes to see that there are still problems that we need to fix. The Biblical background also provided a great opportunity for application in the future through the use of scripture.”
“This session was helpful in allowing me to realize that this issue should not be avoided but should be discussed in appropriate settings along with prayer and research. I will be able to apply the information I have learned while being an RA and possibly facing some of these issues.”
“The scripture used in this session was wonderful…And I absolutely loved the videos of students sharing their genuine thoughts.”
“The topic of ethnic diversity is not widely discussed on campus or in many Christian circles. This session helped to establish the importance of this topic to the gospel and the relevance of this issue on Christian campuses. I hope to be more sensitive to this issue and perhaps initiate discussions with fellow believers about their experience or insights.”
“The entire session had a broad spectrum of viewpoints and backgrounds while looking through the eyes of Christ. It is evident that a Christ-like, Biblical response is the goal of this learning tool.”
“It was a wake up call for me and showed me that I am somewhat prejudiced against minorities. It provided me with new ways to think about racial issues.”
“Each scenario provided a different idea with how to help with healing the hurts caused by ethnic divisions on campus. Overall, this exercise was interesting and thought-provoking. It is obvious that I need to reconsider the color-blind approach and look more into how to embrace my ethnic identity and the various ethnic identities around me.”
“So much packed in here. All of it was helpful and well done. I plan to actually go back and spend more time reviewing a few items in more detail. Love the student videos…they add actual situations to the general discussion.”
“The session was particularly helpful because it tackled real issues on Christians campus, and gaven concrete ways to help solve a variety of issues.”
