Diversity Programming

The Perspectives Series is a hybrid program that delves into aspects of identity and diversity while giving prospective students identifying as students of color, first-generation, and/or LGBTQIA+ a dedicated space to make connections, build community, and ask questions through both on-campus and virtual opportunities.

We kicked off our program with our in-person event on Nov. 6 where we welcomed students to experience the campus. We are thrilled to continue engaging students who did not have an opportunity to visit campus through our virtual programming on select dates in December. Please register for our upcoming webinars below!
