Welcome to Perspectives!

Perspectives is a new newsletter that includes events, stories, and opportunities for education from our team in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education & Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Resources! Thank you for opting in to learn more about us and the diverse community of students, graduates, faculty, and staff here at Mason. Included in each newsletter is an overview of all the amazing events and programs we organize and support as well as previews of our upcoming events for the month. For our Spring 2018 edition, we are featuring a special farewell dedication to two members of our staff who are graduating this semester. We also have information on the various graduations (listed in the right column) and involvement opportunities for scholarships and service.This newsletter will showcase stories, scholarships, and communities.

Special thanks to our Assistant Director in Outreach and Marketing, Katlin Barrett, for making this newsletter happen, as well as our student staff contributors: Nina Johnson, Eric Williams, and Hannah Vandegrift.
