University of Evansville Dedicates Diversity Resource Center
Posted: Thursday, September 7, 2017
The University of Evansville held a dedication ceremony for the newly finished Diversity Resource Center on September 6 at noon. The dedication took place in the back yard of the Diversity Resource Center, located at 436 Weinbach Avenue, and UE students gave tours of the house following the ceremony.
The University of Evansville is committed to inclusion and the broadened commitment to promoting a more integral understanding of differences. The Diversity Resource Center is a physical reminder that UE stands behind this commitment. It is a safe space for students to gather and is equipped with technology and materials to facilitate collaboration and inclusion. There are both work spaces and game spaces as well as a fully functioning kitchen for social gatherings and more.
Those who spoke at the ceremony included: Thomas Kazee, UE’s president; Bob Jones, Chairman and CEO of Old National Bank and member of the UE board of trustees diversity committee; Jacob Lutz, UE’s Student Government Association president; and Tammy Gieselman, UE Chaplain.
