2019 being you

An event that highlights the diversity, commonality, and inclusive campus we try to be.  The theme for 2019/2020 is our Shared Humanity.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, September 17 and 18 campus members will be asked to write down and post their "message to humanity".  We're looking for campus members to share their thoughts, advice, prayers, and vision for an improved world.  Participate by visiting the table in front of Ullman Commons from 10am-2pm.   


 Better World Project

Express yourself!  If you’re a creative person who is passionate about social justice and is looking to add to your portfolio, the CDI is providing an outlet to display your talents in creative ways to express your advocacy for diversity, inclusion and equity through graphic design, theater, art, film, music, spoken word, dance, etc.  The Campus Diversity Initiative will sponsor your project with mini-grants ranging from $50 to $200 to purchase supplies and to help put your project on display.  


 Sisters' Circle

 Under the advisement of faculty and staff, Black female students may choose to join this support group that focuses on their social well-being through meetings, outings, and activities throughout the academic year.  The program is free and funded by the Campus Diversity Initiative. 

Weekly meetings for fall 2019: TBA
