TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana State University has a special way the campus acknowledges people’s differences. On the seventh floor of the Hulman Memorial Student Union, the whole floor is dedicated to promoting the diversity in the campuses students. For some, it’s a treasure.
“It’s just something about this floor that puts a smile on your face,” said Rei Blaylock.
She’s the floors' graduate assistant for the student resource center. She says this floor is something special.
“We want you to express who you truly are. We want you to embrace your flaws, embrace all the things that you’ve gone through,” she said.
In October 2015, student leaders and faculty say that some Sycamores weren’t getting the recognition that they deserve.
This is how the Multicultural Services and Programs floor came about. There are four rooms that promote different cultures, beliefs, and genders. There’s the International room, the LGBTQ room, the La Casita room, and the Women’s resource center.
Each room offers students a place where they can be free, safe and comfortable.
The floor is open to anyone on campus. It’s open from 8:00 a.m. -8:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. on Friday’s. Leaders say their goal for this floor is to promote diversity and inclusion.
