From Campus Reform:

Northeastern University plans to host a three-day retreat where students will have the opportunity to discuss and learn strategies on how to combat power and privilege.

The “DISMANTLE Retreat: Deconstructing Power and Privilege” will require students to learn “to do the work of resisting oppressive power dynamics,” and is open to “ALL students, regardless of identity,” because “most of us have privileges that we benefit from.”

“Identifying the presence and impact of privilege can be challenging for those to whom privileges are granted because it is often seen as ‘the norm,’” an online description for the event states. “It is sort of like asking a fish to notice water or birds to discuss air.”
