At West Texas A&M University, we believe it's important to promote, honor and celebrate the uniqueness of all heritages, cultures and ethnicities. Through the efforts of Diversity Programs, students can gain a strong sense of community among all students, and at the same time, learn to appreciate the diverse nature of our campus.
Monthly programs educate the campus about specific cultures through dance, storytelling and panel discussions, to name a few.
Another program, occurring about four times a year, is called Taste of the World. The program brings food from various cultures and countries to the students of WTAMU.
Future Buff Day is a program in the spring for fifth grade students who are potential first generation college students. Students and their parents tour campus, have dinner and hear speakers talk about making college a realistic goal.
Other events and programs include an annual Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration, LatinoFest and black history month activities.
