SLU's Diversity Awareness Month originally started in 2001 as a month of inter-religious and intercultural activities offered to the community in response to the September 11 terrorist attacks. Since then student organizations, departments, academic units work in tandem to sponsor a wide variety of programs and events designed to foster awareness and respect for social, cultural, religious, and ideological diversity.

During Diversity Awareness Month participants will:

  • Foster awareness and respect for social, cultural, religious, and ideological diversity
  • Learn about differences among social and cultural identities, 
  • Learn to appreciate the values, beliefs, and attitudes reflected by individuals and groups.
Higher purpose. Greater good.
