Washburn University | Kansas, United States | Advancing SDG 16 & UNAI 7
" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I have always enjoyed doing something bigger than myself. When we found out through our Bonner group at school about the Sustainable Development Goals I was left with the feeling of needing to do more to help our world and communities. So, when I was approached with the idea to join a team in which I would be given the opportunity to do exactly that I jumped at it! It has been so exciting to go through this process, and to have the U.N. behind me every step of the way. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: WU Diversity and Inclusion Ambassadors
Once completed our project will help students to feel more connected to the university especially when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion. This group will have at least monthly meetings to discuss whether or not the diversity and inclusion needs of the students are being met. They will also have these meetings with the head of the Diversity and Inclusion office. They may even put on events on campus. This group will be sustainable as we will make it a organizational position which is filled each time they get new officers. They will be able to fund raise as needed. Overall this will be a very important group to have on campus, and one which will stand the test of time.
