Emphasis of this session
This e-learning session helps Christian college students to answer these key questions:
- What are some obstacles to healthy ethnic relations on campus?
- What does the Bible say about ethnic relations?
- How can I help to promote healthy, biblical ethnic relations on our campus?
Summary of the Learning Scenario
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 Section 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.”
“All of the scenarios really seemed like they could be real and the conversations didn’t seem fake. The Bible passages quoted or brought up I think were the most beneficial to me.”
“I loved all of the Scripture and the resources that you provided.”
“This session helped me to realize just how applicable the scriptures are to diversity issues directly. I didn’t appreciate how much biblical content had a direct impact on this topic.”
“I think this session did a good job of bringing the Biblical perspective into the topic of ethnicity in the church. I really appreciated the Scriptural references.”
“It opened my eyes to issues that are occurring on my campus that I am not aware of and it gave me some helpful hints in regards to how to interact in healthy ways with people of other people groups.”
“It was helpful to learn how certain responses can have different effects, because then if you ever are in a similar situation, then you have some ideas about how to respond and can maybe choose the best response.”
“I think overall the session was very helpful. One of the main points that hit home for me was the fact that it isn’t best to just assume the view of color-blindness, and the section that discussed it was very well done.”
“This session was helpful in that it gave scripture to refer to when faced with difficult questions about diversity. It also helped by giving good examples of how to answer people with love instead of frustration and anger.”
“It made me look at ethnic issues in a different light. I am one of those people that thinks there aren\’t really any issues nowadays, but I see that both sides of the ethnic spectrum need to be a little more understanding of one another: the majority and the minority.”
“It really gave inspiration about how we can make a difference in the world by starting out on our own college campus.”
“I thought it was helpful to put the information in a real life scenario…these could be issues happening on any college campus.”
“It made me face the reality that cultural differences matter and that claiming to be color-blind is not a good way to make yourself feel OK.”
“All of the session was helpful. I appreciated the Biblical background and the emphasis on prayer. I really appreciated the session that explained biblically why some students should receive more financial aid. This is very applicable to our work setting and it’s great to have answers for people who question this.”
“Brought up some issues about ethnic relations that many people do not think about or quickly overlook. It also challenged me to be more willing to stand up for what I believe is right with ethnic relations, as well as treatment of anyone.”
“I liked the Q&A sessions with real students. I liked how they were candid and not super polished. It was encouraging to hear from students of various ethnic backgrounds. Being white, I was grateful to hear students of other races stating plainly what they thought and what their experiences were.”
“I was amazed by how much Scripture was integrated into the story. Somebody did a phenomenal job putting the script and reading materials together! I liked that prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit were emphasized.”
“I learned so much from this training, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to do it at my college. I think it will affect how I interact with students and faculty of color on campus.”
