Unity Week

Diversity is important to any learning environment. It helps us understand the people around us, see new perspectives, and foster a curiosity about the world and community we live in. Since it began in 2000, Unity Week has been a celebration of diversity at Holy Cross, as well as an encouragement to keep learning and exploring. Through performances, dialogue, and fun activities, this weeklong event brings our community together and challenges us to ask more. Unity Week is sponsored annually by the Student Government Association.
