This year marks the Eighth Annual Diversity Week at UConn School of Law! First organized in 2011, this campus-wide event showcases the Law School’s commitment to offering a safe and diverse environment. Diversity Week’s activities offer ALL members of the community a chance to celebrate the many differences that make each of us unique. United by this year’s theme of “Your voice, your story, our diversity,” Diversity Week 2018 looks at the diversity of our community in all forms. This week seeks to show the importance of inclusion and breaking down misconceptions of one another. In a time where diversity has been used to divide people, it is important to show that everyone is diverse and has their own story to tell, which can bring people together.
Throughout the week, student organizations host a variety of events that encourage community members to take pause and appreciate how each member contributes to the Law School’s campus culture. These conversations and new perspectives are then encouraged to continue outside of the Law School forum. Since 2013, Shipman & Goodwin LLP has been the exclusive sponsor for Diversity Week at UConn Law School.
