The 12th annual Unity Celebration, featuring an hors d’oeuvres reception and activities to commemorate cultural diversity on the SUNY Cortland campus, has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 1. Inclement weather forced its cancellation on Feb. 25.

Part of the College’s Black History Month series in February and continuing the College’s yearlong theme of “Breaking Down Walls,” the event will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

The Unity Celebration is free and open to the public. Participants must R.S.V.P. by Wednesday, March 24, to attend by contacting Ann Cutler, Multicultural Life Office, at (607) 753-2336.

Marques R. Dexter, assistant track and field/cross country coach and the recruiting coordinator for athletics at SUNY Cortland, will deliver the keynote speech. This year’s celebration will feature musical performances, student speakers and multicultural awards.

The program is sponsored by the College’s Affirmative Action Committee, Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies (CGIS), the Committee on the Status of Women in Education, the Multicultural Council, the Multicultural Life Office, the President’s Office, the Student Government Association, the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs’ Office and the Vice President for Student Affairs’ Office.
