Color Me Human: Expanding Diversity Perspectives.
Color Me Human, an initiative of Hawkeye Community College to provide student leadership and commitment by fostering greater appreciation for campus diversity, was implemented in 1996 through a student-driven approach. The Color Me Human Program not only embraces diversity, but builds individual commitment and community among students, faculty, and staff. The program encourages the development of student leaders to facilitate communication among individuals and to integrate co-curricular programming of various departments. Color Me Human has implemented its diversity measures through co-curricular activities, presentations, speakers, and conferences. The presentations include open forums that engage students, faculty, and staff in meaningful dialogues on diversity issues. These expanding diversity perspectives encounters are promoted through brochures and announcements, and are often open to the general public. Color Me Human has had a positive impact not only on Hawkeye's campus, but throughout the district as a whole. Personal responses to the program have been positive, and efforts will continue to integrate diversity programming into the general curriculum and promote awareness. (YKH)
