The Finance & Administration Diversity Committee Presents: “Steps Towards Diversity, a journey of selective sites denoting African American contributions at the University of Georgia"
Come take a journey with us by participating in our inaugural African American self-guided site tour. This tour features eight sites throughout campus denoting African American contributions at the University of Georgia. Each site contains a QR code that allows for participants to learn more about the significance of each location. Each site also contains a word jumble letter; collect all 8 letters to solve the word jumble and be the first of 100 to receive an F&A Diversity Committee gift bag. This tour will be available until May 31, 2022.
On each informational page, you will see a link to a survey. Please fill out the survey when you have visted all 8 sites on the tour and collected all 8 word jumble letters.
