Diversity Student Council

  • The Diversity Student Council is comprised of students interested in spreading awareness about diversity issues, advocating for all IUP students, and creating an inclusive campus community.

    The group held initial meetings during the 2014 spring semester, in which they developed an organizational structure, elected officers, and began discussion for a retreat. Multiple meetings, retreats, and campuswide activities were held in 2014–15, and again during the 2015–16 academic year. Events held in 2016–17 included an empanada sale, diversity challenge, talent exhibition, a Black History Month workshop series, cultural expo, social justice workshop series, and dance showcase. Such cultural events were again held during the 2017-19 academic years, with more planned for 2019-20.

    New members are always welcome. For further information, please contact Leslie Coates, assistant director of Multicultural Affairs and Student Success, in Elkin Hall at coates@iup.edu.
