Salukis In Unity

Thank you to all who helped make the first Salukis In Unity Campaign a success! We look forward to this becoming an annual event.  #salukisinunity

2018 Salukis In Unity

As we return to campus and begin a new semester, it is important to reflect on what it means to be a member of the Saluki family.  Everyone deserves the opportunity to live and learn in a safe and welcoming environment.  Salukis In Unity is designed to appreciate, promote, and program around what makes us all proud members of our campus community.

As the Saluki Creed states “As a Saluki, I pledge to forward the ideas and ideals.  I discourage bigotry and celebrate diversity by striving to learn from differences in people’s ideas and opinions.  I will embrace the ideals of freedom of civilized expression, intellectual inquiry and respect for others.”

Join us at these activities and experience #SalukisInUnity.
