Diversity T-Shirts

Two Diversity T-shirts. One black shirt says inside a speech bubble: Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance! The second shirt is gray and says inside a speech bubble: Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.

If you do not have a diversity t-shirt, please contact Michele Marcum at michele.marcum@ sinclair.edu.
