Diversity Pledge

Did you know that the month of November is Native American Heritage Month? What does the word “diversity” mean to you? How does diversity impact you personally? Or how does it affect the community?

Diversity is very important here at San Diego State, and we would like to inform our San Diego State University students about diversity month. As students, we should be aware of other cultures besides ours and be mindful of others beliefs. San Diego State is ranked number 18 in the nation for campus ethnic diversity. Get involved with events like this and educate yourself on other important cultures that do matter!

The office of Intercultural Relations currently supports the Associated Students Pledge Diversity Campaign. The Pledge Diversity Campaign will take place on San Diego States campus from 12:00pm-2:00pm on Campanile Walkway, near the flagpole by Hepner Hall.  On Wednesday November 28th from 12:00pm – 1:00pm at Scripps Cottage there will be a Diversity Pledge signing ceremony set for all students at SDSU. This event will discuss the roles both you as an individuals and an organization can fill. There is also a Pledge Diversity video available here. The purpose of this video is to inform students of how diverse this campus is and also to even improve programs regarding diversity here at San Diego State University. If you wish to have more information on this specific even on “Native American Heritage Month” please contact Dr. Tanis Starck the Director of the Office of Intercultural Relations at: tstarck@mail.sdsu.edu.
