Diversity Facilitators

Diversity Facilitators

Diversity Facilitators continue promoting campus unity and respect for diversity throughout the year, in part, via the “Dialogues on Diversity” series. These open, campus-wide discussions are held on Fridays at 12:00 PM in Miner Lounge (unless noted otherwise) and cover a variety of cultural and social issues. Facilitators may program in their college and are available to address campus concerns as needed.

Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for information on the weekly discussion topics.
