Event Offers a Celebration of Cultures

4/16/2007 —

Penn State York celebrated its ninth annual Unity Day on Wednesday, April 11 with a variety of activities. Students, faculty, staff and members of the York community gathered to celebrate diversity in the Community Room of the Joe and Risoe Ruhl Student Community Center. Table displays included items from a variety of cultures and, as usual, the food tables provided a variety of cuisine from around the world that reflected the origin or ancestry of faculty, staff and students. Unity Day at Penn State York is the culmination of the work of the campus Diversity Committee, which includes students, faculty and staff. A variety of multicultural events have been planned throughout the year to provide a forum for the campus and community to learn about diversity. Goals for Unity Day include creating teachable moments to learn about diversity and to provide an opportunity for the campus and community to suggest ways Penn State can create a multicultural environment. Unity Day is sponsored in part by the Penn State York Student Government Association and the campus Diversity Committee.
