Diversity in Action

"A student group that aims to promote education, awareness, and social justice to create an inclusive and cohesive environment."

Diversity in Action (DIA) was founded in 2010 by Giavanna Galloway, a Hudson and Holland and Herbert Presidential Scholar and member of the Hutton Honors College (HHC). The group was created to serve the HHC, Indiana University, and greater Bloomington, Indiana communities. DIA functions to promote diversity education and awareness, celebrate cultural differences between groups, and promote unity among students of different backgrounds in order to create a more representative, inclusive, and cohesive atmosphere within the areas that it serves.

Membership is open to all IUB students; students are considered general members if they have either attended a DIA meeting or event or have joined the DIA email list serv. Members may apply for positions of leadership on the organization's committees.
