DineUniversity Sponsored by the Diversity Committee


Purpose: To build a stronger Archway community family by family by learning about each other.

The DineUniversity concept comes from the Diversity committee commitment to encourage open communication, and celebrate our differences. We want to encourage families to get to know other families that they would not normally meet or dine with.This is an opportunity for families to come together and share what is unique about their family, culture and/or traditions.

DineUniversity Guidelines

1. Each group consist of 3 families; each individual family has the opportunity to host dinner in your home for the other two families (for a total of 3 dinners through out the year)

2. We encourage Pot Luck Style dinner or brunch. We encourage your creativity.

3. Ask if there is any dietary considerations for the guest families

4. The host family is invited to share what is unique about their family, culture,
and/or traditions.

5. We want the DineUniversity experience to include both the parents and children.

6. We encourage the children to write an age appropriate report or present an oral
report about their experience (we are working to see how they can get credit for
