Chicago-Kent Diversity Reception for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

* Chicago-Kent Project Smile:

A smile is the shortest distance between two people. To keep our community close, the Chicago-Kent SBA and the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Affairs present the outreach initiative "Project Smile" for Diversity Week 2014. Throughout the week and beyond, we encourage everyone to smile when you pass another person both on and off campus. With just a smile, you can easily make another person's day.

** Chicago-Kent Greenhouse Shelter Diversity Outreach:

To strengthen our connection with the Chicagoland community, the Diverse Student Organizations and the Criminal Law Society are cosponsoring a school supply drive for Diversity Week. We are asking the entire Chicago-Kent community to get involved. All school supplies will be donated to the beneficiary organization, Greenhouse Shelter, which focuses on culturally specific services for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. Please bring any school supplies to the donation box located on the first floor near the elevators from March 3 to 13. Help put smiles on faces of those in need.
