We'll be back in the fall with more Celebration of Diversity events. Check back soon for more information!

About Celebration of Diversity Series

The Celebration of Diversity program lets you engage with our community and attend sessions focused on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. You can attend community-led, identity-based sessions discussing the resources available to and experiences of students who identify as Black or African American, Latinx or Hispanic, part of the LGBTQ+ community, and first-generation college students. Family members are invited to take part in a session hosted by our Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion.

About Turn Tartan Experience

The Celebration of Diversity Series takes place alongside our open house event, the Turn Tartan Experience, and we encourage you to register for sessions from both events! Turn Tartan Experience offerings include academic sessions, virtual tours, student panels, financial aid overviews and more.

Our Celebration of Diversity Series events are highly interactive sessions designed to facilitate dialogue and create space for whatever questions you may have. Consequently, we don't record these sessions. If you're looking for more information about our academic colleges and departments, resources on campus, financial aid and more, we encourage you to check out session recordings from our fall 2020 Turn Tartan Experience.
