18.   Most colleges and universities today are struggling with tensions related to race relations, sexual harrasment,
      responsible alcohol use and physical safety. Please describe any new programs or policies dealing with these
      issues.
      St. Olaf is part of the Teagle Project, a four-college collaborative project focusing on racial and ethnic diversity. The
      first phase of the Teagle project was a campus climate survey conducted in October of 1999. Data collected from the
      survey is being analyzed and will be reported back to the St. Olaf community by the end of the spring term. Phase 2 of
      the Teagle project includes the development of collaborative urban immersion experiences in which teams from each of
      the four campuses will participate. Two immersion experiences will be held over the summer of 2000, one experience
      will be in New York City the other in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
