USD Hosts Diversity Week Events

Monday, March 11, 2013

Using the words, “One People, One Planet and One Purpose” as its inspirational theme, the University of San Diego campus will host its fifth annual University of Diversity Week through Saturday.

A number of events, including the annual March of the Toreros from Maher Hall to the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice, will take place March 10-16 to raise awareness of diversity on campus and, through these events, offers a chance for the entire community to come together, talk and learn more about each other.
