Thank you to those who submitted our diversity communications survey during September and October. We appreciate your assistance in making our communications more useful and informative.
Your comments included numerous topic ideas for future coverage as well as feedback on how often you engage with the communication channels of the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity and our four campus community centers: the African American Cultural Center, the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs and the Women’s Center. Look for articles in the coming semester on some of these great topics.
