UEVETS receive 2018 Diversity and Inclusion at Work Award
Posted: Tuesday, August 7, 2018
The University of Evansville student group UEVETS received the University's Diversity and Inclusion at Work Award during UE's 2018 Annual Leadership Award ceremony in the spring.
This award is given to a student organization, athletic team, or group of students that sponsored or participated in a program with the goal of providing diversity and social justice education through a campus or community event.
UEVETS was honored because of its Spare Change for Warriors fundraising efforts, the Veteran’s Day Program, and the support that the students give to one another. UEVETS help students transcend their experience at UE academically.
LaNeeca Williams, University of Evansville chief diversity officer, stated that “this group is deserving in so many different ways. I am positive that most campus members don’t even understand the magnitude of all that UEVETS does in terms of support and programming on campus. They add to the diversity and inclusion efforts for all of our students.”
