Alliance for Inclusion and Diversity “YouNF Week” seeks to engage the campus
community in the celebration of diversity and inclusion through a week-long
series of programs and activities. “YouNF” Week aims to unify the student body
as we embrace being our authentic selves. We each have a unique role to play in
creating an inclusive and diverse campus community. Just like the University
motto states, there really is “No one like YOU” here, and we want to celebrate
all that YOU bring to UNF. SAID “YouNF” Week is open to all students. We
personally invite you to attend at least one or all of our diversity-focused
events and help us promote diversity and inclusion at the University.
