DisOrientation, otherwise known as DisO, was started in the early 2000’s by OPIRG and a variety of independent student groups with the collective goal of creating a space where both new and returning students can be introduced to more political aspects of university life.
It usually runs for a week in September, and consists of a series of workshops, discussions, tours and events that challenge participants to think critically about social and environmental justice issues.
Events in previous years included: Campus Farm to Table Tour, Cards Against the Patriarchy, Anti-War Activism Workshop, Challenging Privatization, Queer Writing as Resistance, Vegan BBQ, Gzaagigoo Anishinaabe Mnoomin (We Love You Mnoomin), and more!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Disorientation Week!
We look forward to planning another great week for 2021!
