AUSTIN, Texas—Campus Fusion, a student initiative celebrating diversity at The University of Texas at Austin and bringing together students from all walks of life, will feature a series of volunteer, educational, informative and celebratory activities on campus Sept. 26 through Oct. 4.
The activities, which are all free and open to the public, will range from a flag football tournament for the benefit of a local non-profit agency to serious discussions about diversity. Participating members of the university’s faculty will center one of their lectures on a topic relating to diversity and students will discuss diversity issues that apply to their class syllabus or discuss current events.
“This event acknowledges and celebrates the diverse university community and recognizes the importance of education leading to a greater understanding of the world around us,” said Brenda Burt, director of the university’s Multicultural Information Center.
The student initiative, inspired by former President Clinton’s Week of Dialogue, is sponsored by the University Co-op in partnership with the Office of the President, Office of the Provost, Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs, Student Government, The Daily Texan, Red Pill Forum, SEC Events Co-sponsorship Committee, Recreational Sports, KVRX Radio and the Multicultural Information Center.
