Diversity Speaks! People Sharing their Diverse Stories
for this series that you will not want to miss. Light refreshments will be served, but feel free to bring your lunch.
As part of university-wide efforts to enhance campus climate regarding diversity, the Division of Student Affairs has launched a program to make it easier for students to know where and how to report incidents of discrimination. (Students always have had the ability to report discrimination they observe or experience themselves, but until now lacked information about precisely whom to contact and how the information might be used.) The idea for the initiative began with OMA's own Director, Naomi Sigg!
Under the new system, students will be able to enter reports through a standardized online form or a telephone call to the office. Staff will follow up on every submission in ways that differ depending on its details. The program is open to students at all levels—undergraduate, graduate and professional.

This is am IMPORTANT national survey that gives us critical information about the experiences of our students on campus. In order to have the best possible voice in the results, it is CRUCIAL to take about 30 minutes to complete the survey.
