Campus Champion

“This Student Diversity Conference is a phenomenal opportunity for our campus community,” said Katrina Hodge, assistant director of Multicultural Life and Diversity and conference advisor. The in-person event on Saturday, Nov. 5, will bring together student leaders from across the region to celebrate diversity and promote awareness of divergent views on our campuses and within our communities. Katrina connects with students as an ally development workshop facilitator and mentor, empowering by promoting the importance of inclusive and equitable educational experiences. She works passionately to see that all students succeed. Katrina shares this valuable advice: “Step out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself, ask questions, build connections and see people for who they are.” Start by attending the 12th Annual Student Conference on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice
