DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
As an organization meant to represent our entire student body, we pledge to learn to better support every Hotelie. In the fall, we hope to make an impactful change in the way we create programs, the way we select groups, and the way we interact with our peers. In this post, we have included a list of resources compiled that we will be using in the hopes of becoming the leaders you deserve. This list is just the start of how we hope to learn.
