Diversity Beyond the Dictionary: An Interactive Exhibit
The Diversity and Culture Committee at The Universities at
Shady Grove works to promote a positive institutional culture
that appreciates diversity, enriches the educational experience
of students and supports a healthy workplace environment and
promotes personal growth.
As a way to recognize diversity we have listed some
diversity-related terms and their Oxford dictionary definitions.
Please, engage the community by participating in this
interactive exhibit. Write your own understanding of what
these words mean to you. Pens are hanging on each poster for
you to participate.
Since creating a safe learning environment is a priority for USG,
we encourage all members of the USG Community to utilize the
USG Center for Counseling and Consultation at 301-738-6273
for assistance or referral in case needed.
Celebrations Across Nations
Holidays across the world whether religious or cultural
are celebrated with rich customs and various traditions.
Taking a look at the ways in which different cultures
celebrate their holidays allows us to learn about what is
important to them and gives us a glimpse of their culture
This exhibit explores eighteen holidays that represent
and are celebrated by diverse religions as well as
cultures that span beyond borders. While this exhibit
covers only a fraction of the festivities that exist and
occur around the world, it aims to initiate an acceptance,
interest, learning and appreciation for diversity.
