Teaching Human Respect & Encouraging Action Diversity Series

About This Diversity Initiative

Teaching Human Respect & Encouraging Action Diversity Series (THREADS) is a campus-wide diversity initiative to encourage intentional diversity programming throughout the University community through a coordinated diversity calendar.  THREADS calendars reflect various topics in diversity like: ability, class, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual identity, and more.  They will exclusively promote diversity programs, activities, and events sponsored by campus departments and student organizations. 

It is the purpose of THREADS to encourage the University community to explore and celebrate the cultures of diverse populations on campus.  In addition, THREADS intends to promote understanding and mutual respect of all members of our community.  By promoting understanding and mutual respect, THREADS helps build a more welcoming and more inclusive University community.

For more information about THREADS, click here for a presentation, or contact THREADS Committee.
