Everyone Included campaign bridges diversity efforts
You probably have noticed the "Everyone Included" window graphics in the three College of Technology buildings. Soon, you'll be seeing the graphic in individual office windows and as lapel pins throughout the college.
The graphic was created to bring together all of the College of Technology diversity and inclusion efforts under one common idea: Everyone is included here. Faculty and staff who display the window graphics or wear the lapel pins also tell students and their colleagues that they are actively involved in making the college a welcoming environment for all.
In addition to the graphic, the college's diversity efforts have a new presence on the college Web site. You can find news stories, the diversity plan and other resources. You can also request an "Everyone Included" window decal from the home page.
