The large poster campaign -- which highlighted faculty, staff, and students who participated, displayed identities such as race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, as well as regional origin and personal interests -- debuted in February. We encouraged the submission of self-made "mini-posters" to allow the campus the ability to display the identities which made them, in their definition, diverse.

Therefore, the meetings are being moved to 203 Center for Health Sciences, a spacious classroom on the second floor past the CHS coffee cart and around the corner to the right (beneath the Wellness Clinic).

The time has been adjusted slightly to 12:15-1:00 p.m.
