Unity in diversity
The student population at the University is vast and varied, making diversity one of our greatest assets. Unity in Diversity asserts fundamentally that assimilation is not unity. Unity is instead the critical and conscious move of individuals and communities toward mindfulness, understanding and compassion. We find that thinking critically of differences enhances the lives of individuals and communities and drives us to new ideas, technologies, and widened perspectives. We set the stage for speakers to communicate their own diversity experiences; we promote the experiencing of a diverse array of cuisines; and finally, we provide a space to meet new friends and colleagues.
Welcome to Unity in Diversity!
Unity in Diversity is a diversity engagement event which operates in the interest of promoting unity through the understanding and appreciation of differences, featuring a sampling of food from around the world, talks from selected speakers on their diversity experiences, and a panel dialogue with these selected speakers and the audience.
Speakers are selected through a speaker competition, typically held in late February/early March. The speaker competition for 2019 has ended. Please check back in early 2020 if you are interested in participating.
