The Calendar to Promote Diversity and Inclusion at Stony Brook University will promote inclusive communities by raising awareness around a diverse set of identities and issues, while striving to maintain a socially just environment for students, staff, and faculty. The Calendar will focus on programming efforts and community participation and engagement to ensure that every group is being heard, validated, represented, and supported.
Each month is devoted to recognizing and honoring the culture, traditions, contributions, and struggles of identity groups that have historically experienced oppression.
