Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

It is fair to say that 2020 has been a year like no other and around the world people are standing up for ideals of equality and inclusion. Join the Student Government’s efforts to help create a campus that is diverse and united, expressive and respectful, and inclusive and supportive of the student body.
