Celebrating its 12th year, People Awareness Week continues to promote interaction and positive relationships throughout the University of Florida and supports us in learning about each other. Weeklong festivities encourage the acceptance, respect, and appreciation of diversity throughout the campus in relation to race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, economic status and religious affiliation. You are encouraged to discuss barriers that exist in celebrating diversity and to develop strategies to eliminate these barriers.
