What is Inclusion Week?
This year marks the inaugural Inclusion week at Villanova University. The series, which runs from Sept. 27-Oct. 1, is being sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) in partnership with many groups on campus.
According to its mission statement, “the Inclusion Week Initiative aims to create awareness for identity and advocacy-based organizations, identify resource centers on campus, promote diversity and inclusion education in and out of the classroom, and build a comfortable environment on campus for students of different backgrounds. Our guiding pillars of Diversity, Unity, and Empowerment remind us that inclusion is, and always will be, DUE on our campus. Through the power of education and celebration, Inclusion Week is a time to grow individually and as a community.” Please see their full list of events here.
Be sure to get involved in these events be a part of this important initiative on campus!
