Next week the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Access will launch a new series of campus wide conversations – “The Difference is Dialogue.” The first dialogue will focus on understanding, appreciating and respecting differences and will be held Tuesday from 7-8:30 p.m., in the Volstorff Ballroom at the University Student Union.
Future dialogues will be announced soon and are open to faculty, staff, students and community members. They will provide a platform for members of our community to hear about our values of diversity and engage in dialogue about how to be proactive and inclusive.
South Dakota State University is committed to the values of diversity and inclusion for all members of our community regardless of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, individual identity, ability, national origin or heritage. We collectively value and appreciate diversity and difference and it’s our ability to be inclusive and respectful of others that makes our university a vibrant place.
SDSU welcomes students from every state in our nation and over 90 countries. We welcome faculty from all corners of the globe. We all come together, many from different backgrounds that are more racially, ethnically and culturally diverse than ever before to form this great university. This diversity enriches our campus community and helps prepare us to live in a dynamic and changing world.
