Diversity Spotlight Recipient - January 2016

Beloit College is the recipient of the January Division III Diversity Spotlight Initiative.  Beloit College seeks to ensure that its students take advantage of the myriad of opportunities that are available to them, and the college encourages student-athletes to discover their passions beyond the classroom and playing field. In keeping with those hallmarks of the Division III model, Beloit College has launched several diversity and inclusion efforts.  These efforts span across the campus through programing and infrastructural development in the community.  Specific programming includes diverse hiring, senior staff promotions and programming designed to challenge their students to make a contribution in a diverse society.  Click here to read the full story.

To submit for consideration for the Diversity Spotlight Initiative, please email Jessica Duff or Jaime Dicks, with a brief statement (no more than 500 words) as to why your institution or conference office deserves to be the spotlight recipient.
