Diversity Council

Membership Eligibility: All Members of the Jefferson Community

Membership Dues or Fees: None

Description:
The Diversity Council’s mission is to seek participation and input from Jefferson students in bringing forth educational programs, events and activities that fosters cultural awareness and sensitivity and celebrates diversity on campus. In addition, it provides students with a safe environment to discuss and voice concerns. Events that we hold are the annual "Holidays Around the World" celebration, which is a school-wide student display of holiday traditions from different cultures, Diversity Summit which will be held in January and Diversity Week in the spring. Additionally, we sponsor numerous lunchtime talks on topics related to diversity and inclusion throughout the year.
