Diversity and Inclusion
"The gifts to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion have been very beneficial over the last couple of years. The donations have provided free haircuts to over 300 students over the last two years. These are not just haircuts for domestic underrepresented students, but for students from all identities. Donations have also helped students who have been in severe financial trouble and to put students in a position to graduate from Northwest. This has encouraged them to give back to the same fund that helped them as students. Finally, donations have funded programming initiatives and allowed the Office of Diversity and Inclusion the opportunity to provide learning opportunities not only to our students and employees, but to the entire Maryville community.
Donations to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion have allowed us to promote diversity and inclusion not only on our campus but in our region as well. Northwest has a strategic objective to enhance and foster an inclusive campus environment and donations have allowed our office to work towards that goal and see some great results in the process. From the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to you, I would like to say thank you to all our donors."
