Mission Statement

The Diversity Center is committed to empowering the PLU community to engage in dialogue, programs, and initiatives that promote and enhance equity, agency, and action.

We value:

Critical Reflection: Recognizing and examining assumptions, values, attitudes, and emotions and how they guide out actions, decisions, and how we interact with others
Perspective taking: Acknowledging, respecting, and exploring divergent viewpoints, ideas, experiences, and traditions with empathy
Community: Taking ownership of our membership in multiple communities and developing meaningful relationship with others to work towards positive change

Sounds of Solidarity

Sounds of Solidarity is an event that celebrates diversity through student performance and that gives people the opportunity to be able to express how they feel, be vulnerable within themselves and the audience – whether it is with spoken word, a poem, song,

This year’s theme: Pressure Makes Diamonds, will emphasize the ways in which marginalized identities overcome and excel in the face of adversity. This is a platform for personal growth giving the audience an enlightening experience – sharing a personal experience that has been challenging.

Join us Tuesday, April 19 at 7 p.m. in The Cave. Admission is free.
