I Heart Diversity Awards
Each year, the Office of Multicultural Affairs recognizes and celebrates individuals and groups within the USF community who have displayed a commitment to inclusive excellence during the academic year. During this celebration, we showcase our diverse student leaders, highlight achievements in our programs throughout the year, and reflect on the diverse path to preeminence.
The 2019 I Heart Diversity Award Celebration was held on April 10, 2019, in the MSC Ballroom from 5:30-7:30pm.
