Diversity Committee

The Williston State College Diversity Committee is made up of members of faculty, staff, and student representatives. The goal of the committee is promote cultural diversity and awareness in the classroom, campus, and community. The committee is responsible for many cultural activities around campus.

The committee showcases a display located by the Teton Grill of different holidays, cultural events, and languages around the globe. These holidays are sometimes specific to other cultures, or show how other cultures celebrate the same holidays we do in the United States. This display is updated at the beginning at each month.

The committee also holds events on campus during different times of the year. They host an annual event on campus called "Taste of Cultures". For the event, members of faculty, staff and students all across campus bring foods from different cultures and offer tastings to anyone on campus. The event is always very successful and is met with great enthusiasm from participants.

The head of the committee is Tony Freed who attends regular meetings with the NDUS diversity committee to report the campus progress. The WSC committee tries to hold a certain number of events each year, and has to set goals at their first meeting for that school year. If you would like to be on the committee or would like a copy of the minutes from a meeting please contact Tony Freed at 701-774-4502 or tony.freed@willistonstate.edu.
