What is the Diversity Series?
Since 2005 Yakima Valley College has partnered with several local area organizations to host events and lectures through the annual Diversity Series.
The events provide YVC the opportunity to bring diverse perspectives to everyday topics and push the boundaries of the term beyond race, gender, social class, and sexuality.
The series benefits the college and the greater community by extending the concept of education beyond the classroom.
The theme this year: Awareness, Alliance, Action.
