Diversity – Office of Student Engagement
Diverse Student Organizations
The Office of Student Engagement encourages open and constructive dialogue about areas of difference and the appreciation of those of varied backgrounds on our campus.
One mechanism to do so is through the establishment of student organizations with the dedicated goal of fostering understanding in the areas of race (Black Student Union), ethnicity (Society of Hispanic Leaders), sex (Women’s Alliance) and sexuality (Unison). These groups provide examples of how student needs are matched with institutional resources, both financial and human, to live our College’s core values.
An example of such collaboration involved Unison, a group dedicated to creating awareness and support of students who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, attending a Pride Festival in Chicago, Illinois on June 26-28, 2009. Through the support of the Student Advisory Council, Unison will use the skills they learned at this event to further enhance diversity and inclusion at Delta College.
