The IMSA library and the Instructional Technology and Media Center are excited to be sharing the 2017 Faces of IMSA exhibit with you in recognition of National Diversity Awareness Month highlighting IMSA’s mission for equity and excellence, diversity and inclusion.
Over 190 IMSA students, faculty, and staff participated. 69 photographs are exhibited on the walls of the library, and all of the photographs are included in an album on IMSA’s Facebook page. They can also be viewed on a slideshow outside of the library’s west entrance.
“The U.S. Census Bureau has collected detailed data on multiracial people only since 2000, when it first allowed respondents to check off more than one race, and 6.8 million people chose to do so. Ten years later that number jumped by 32 percent, making it one of the fastest growing categories.” Lise Funderburg / National Geographic, October 2013.
IMSA is a place of acceptance and inclusion for all self-identified students and staff. We are proud to display photos that are diverse in more ways than one. We have modeled the Faces of IMSA display after the National Geographic “The Changing Faces of America” article. Let us celebrate all features of diversity.
