Joining President LaForge is Ashley Griffin, president of the Delta State University Student Government Association.
Last week, representatives from several Delta State initiatives worked together to organize a campus event called DSUnited: A Day of Dialogue and Solidarity. The purpose was to reiterate the university’s commitment to diversity, inclusiveness, and a safe and welcoming learning environment.
The events included a speak-out on the main quadrangle of campus, a lunch panel with campus leaders, and a silent vigil for lives lost due to racial hatred and violence. Sponsoring groups included Delta State’s Quality Enhancement Program, Diversity Committee, Winning the Race, the Center for Social Justice and Civic Engagement, the Department of History, the Office of Student Affairs, the International Student Office, and the Student Government Association.
