Task Phase Facu Unit AssD Comments
Websites: All FACS websites for outreach projects such as ExtensionGeorgia Initiative for Community Housing (GICH)ASPIRE Clinic should link to our diversity statements in both English and Spanish. “Diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. The term "diversity" encompasses differences of culture, background and experience among individuals and groups. Such differences include, but are not limited to, differences of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and abilities, as well as political and religious affiliation and socioeconomic status. The College of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Georgia embraces a commitment to diversity by modeling for the state and nation, a community of individuals and programs which seek to reduce prejudice, disparities, and discrimination and build a supportive environment for all.” Spanish version: “Diversidad abarca la aceptación y respeto. El término "diversidad" abarca las diferencias de cultura, formación y experiencia entre los individuos y grupos. Tales diferencias incluyen, pero no se limitan a, las diferencias de raza, etnicidad, origen nacional, color, género, orientación sexual, identidad de género, edad y habilidades, así como afiliación política y religiosa y estatus socioeconómico. La Facultad de La Familia y Ciencias del Consumidor de la Universidad de Georgia abraza un compromiso de diversidad siendo modelado por el estado y la nación, una comunidad de individuos y programas que buscan reducir los prejuicios, las desigualdades, y la discriminación y construir un ambiente de apoyo para todos.” I x Accomplished

The university already has one day of community service recognized on MLK Day.
