Please join Dixie State University’s Multicultural Inclusion Student Association in celebrating Diversity Week from March 22 through March 26.
Diversity Week is a week dedicated to DSU’s entire student body, and everyone is welcome to participate. Diversity is hard to incorporate within a student body, but Dixie State takes great pride in taking measures to represent everyone and to make sure everyone is included. As DSU grows, so does its student diversity, and it is a beautiful thing to witness and celebrate. Some events to expect are those like Taste Around the World to showcase students’ individual cultures and backgrounds and to share with fellow students and staff. A special event on Friday is meant to honor Samuela Tupola and the great impact he has made on Dixie State University as well as serving as the president of DSU’s Multicultural Inclusion Student Association. Come out on Friday to honor Sam and everything he has done to ensure Dixie thrives in celebrating inclusion and diversity on campus.
