Diversity and Inclusion collaborates to build an inclusive intercultural campus environment.
Through significant outreach efforts like cultural immersion trips, social justice leadership summits and the good-natured Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event—in which Longwood men don a pair of high heels and walk to raise awareness about violence toward women—Diversity and Inclusion staff works to build an inclusive intercultural campus environment at Longwood.
More than ten programs throughout the academic year keep our efforts to promote diversity at the forefront. The centerpiece, a four-day commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. day, includes a day of service, protest marches and a regional bus trip.
Named in honor of Longwood’s first African-American graduate, N.H, “Cookie” Scott ’72, the Scott Center for Diversity and Inclusion provides intern workspace, resources and meeting space for various groups on campus.
A thriving and innovative group of campus leaders works to develop and recommend policies and programs that facilitate a more diverse and welcoming community.
