Tunnel of Oppression
Planned every two years, in partnership with many different departments on campus, the Tunnel of Oppression, was brought to Bradley University back in 2005. This interactive event highlights contemporary issues of oppression in a creative and realistic avenue. It is designed to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, privilege, and power by guiding them through a series of scenes. Each scene will aim to educate and challenge participants to think more deeply about issues of oppression throughout society. Here is a video that may help you get a better understanding of what this event may entail. Tunnel of Oppression 2013 Video:

Tours will be running every 20 minutes. We encourage individuals to sign up for a tour time in advance to avoid spaces being filled when you arrive. However, you are free to come without signing up in advance, but keep in mind spaces may be filled.
Also, if you want to experience Tunnel as a group (as a class, with friends, or as a student organization) make sure to indicate this when you sign up electronically. Our electronic sign up system allows users to select the number of spaces that want to occupy for a specific tour time. When signing up for a group please be sure to indicate the number of people that will go through the tour with your group at a specific time. If you still have questions, please feel free to attend the informational session listed below.
