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. Though Diversity Month is celebrated during the month of November, many diversity, inclusion, and multicultural awareness events are hosted throughout the entire academic year.
Through Diversity Month, students not only learn about differences among social and cultural identities, students also learn to appreciate the values, beliefs, and attitudes reflected by individuals and groups.
