In an effort to promote cultural diversity, the Office of Diversity & Student Engagement provides students, faculty members, and staff with several avenues through which they can enhance their knowledge about other cultures and the diversity issues that individuals belonging to such cultures face in today's society. We sponsor a number of multicultural clubs and organizations as well as special events throughout the school-year that bring light to such topics.
We are now accepting nominations for Winthrop's Women of Excellence. Please click the link below to nominate that special someone. All nominees will be invited to a brunch on March 28, 2017.
