    • STEP is a year-long student designed and led peer education program with the goal of promoting diversity education and open dialogues on campus. STEP facilitators conduct diversity-themed presentations throughout the campus community.
  • Difficult Diversity Discussion Series
    • This discussion series aims to get students, faculty, staff and administrators on campus involved in “difficult” conversations concerning issues of diversity by providing a set of ground rules to promote dialogue.
