Diversity Ed Week Begins Sunday

Beginning Sunday, for the sixth year in a row, the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity and the UAB-Diversity Activities Board will sponsor Diversity Education Week on NC State’s campus, with multiple activities scheduled every day through Friday.

The student-led educational week promotes awareness and understanding of diverse culture and fosters intercultural understanding through a college of engaging opportunities, including lectures, workshops, panel and group discussions, information sessions, film, food music and dance.

The goal of the activities is to advance learning and scholarship, build understanding and respect among different peoples, and enhances constructive leadership and dialogue in the local and global community.

All events are free and open to students, faculty and staff.

Participants attending at least two programs (and completing an online evaluation for each) will be entered in a drawing for prizes

    I am very excited about the thoughtfulness that went into organizing these events and I am looking forward observing and feeling and digesting the change that this week will have on the campus community over time. I am a phd intern in the counseling center and would love to see the counseling center and interns (especially those who are members of underrepresented groups) active in this event in the future as a way of stopping the stigma surrounding race/ethnicity and mental wellness. Thank you for doing this.
