The Tunnel of Oppression is a tool that is often used by campuses to communicate issues of oppression within American society to staff and students. The tunnel at Wright State University changes each year with new materials being created to ensure it is relevant to the experiences of marginalized groups.
At Wright State University, the Tunnel of Oppression provides an opportunity for first-year students to share a profound active learning experience about diversity and oppression reduction through participating in the experience with their UVC class. The Tunnel of Oppression is also for all WSU students, faculty, and staff to experience to create a deeper understanding of oppression, privilege and their global histories. Many students remember their Tunnel “aha” moments as a critically important part of their first year at WSU. Thanks to expanded efforts to improve, update, and upgrade materials for fall 2018, students will see a more colorful, image-rich, and relatable Tunnel this fall.
