Diversity and Inclusion Social Media Campaign

In Partnership with the Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee (MOIC) and Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAACs)

October 22-25, 2019 | #NCAAInclusion

Welcome to the campaign website for the 2019 Diversity and Inclusion Social Media Campaign! After the success of the inaugural campaign in 2018, the MOIC and national SAACs have decided to run an additional campaign this year. Similar to last year, this campaign is a platform for student-athletes, administrators, coaches and fans across the country to start the discussion, speak out on, and promote diversity and inclusion as key elements of student-athlete success. The goal of this annual campaign is to engage social media to create a dialogue on diversity and inclusion and to communicate the benefit of inclusive environments to the student-athlete experience.

Below, you will find information on how to make this campaign a success on your campus.

Campaign Days and Themes

Please Note: This year’s themes differ from last year’s themes. Please see below this year’s daily themes. While you are certainly welcome to re-share materials created for last year’s campaign, we highly encourage member institutions and conference offices to create new materials that reflect this year’s themes.

Day 1 (Tuesday, Oct. 22): “This is Who We Are”: exploring student-athletes’ core values and multiple identities. 

Day 2 (Wednesday, Oct. 23): “Broadening Our Horizons”: creating connections across campus and highlighting diverse friendships, mentors, and role models.

Day 3 (Thursday, Oct. 24): “Better Together”: showcasing the strengths and diversity of your campus or conference community.

Day 4 (Friday, Oct. 25): “Taking Action”: outlining personal action steps for inclusive excellence.

Tell us about it!
