Center for Multicultural Education

Diversity Week

Dr. Blake, 2007

Each fall the Center for Multicultural Education sponsors (or co-sponsors) events promoting diversity. This began as a diversity week, but has expanded in scope and time frame over the years. Diversity Week is a celebration, which promotes  cross-cultural awareness and appreciation; to address barriers to social justice, equality and equity; and to foster change toward a more inclusive pluralistic community.
