ASU Celebrates Diversity

By Keith Boles - bio | email feedback

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Fowler Center Grand Hall was filled with a diverse crowd to celebrate the annual Diversity Excellence Awards Luncheon.

Faculty, students, and staff gathered together to honor those who go beyond the norm to educate and work with the public in a broader spectrum than the normal classroom.

Dr. Lillie Fears, the ASU Assistant for Diversity Initiatives says, "Diversity means differences. And our goal is to help people appreciate those differences and work through them for a common good."

The two primary categories of awards were the "Friends of Diversity Recognition" award and the Campus Excellence Awards.
