Do Something Different
Welcome NSU community to the official Do Something Different Blog. I'm Dr. Debra Nixon, your host. Let me express appreciation to President Ferrari for his continued support of our inclusion efforts. We would not have a blog, a website, or your ear (eye, I should say) without his endorsement. Dr. Yang, Dean of SHSS has offered his infinite support to our efforts, so "Thank you Dean." Now, we have established this blog so that we can share our efforts and experiences with creating what I'm calling a “legacy of inclusion.” We want NSU to be The University for inclusion activity. I’m not talking about simply saying that we are inclusive; I'm talking about doing the things that establishes ourselves, without political correctness, as a campus community that walks the talk. We will establish this distinction through our individual efforts and collective. Each of us will challenge ourselves to be the kind of person that makes this campus an inclusive community. See my list of suggestions below. It's that simple. This is not a mandate; you don't have to participate if you so choose. But, this is our invitation to you to join us. Once you declare your own intentions and find that you are being inclusive in any way that is out your ordinary behavior, visit this blog and share your experience with us. We want to hear every story--good, not so good, losses, triumphs—as all of them are important. We want this blog to be an open, living conversation where every voice is a valid one, because we want to support every experience. Let's make this happen. DSD—dosomethingdifferent!
