Diversity Recruitment Day

The Offices of Inclusion & Diversity, Marketing & Communication and Admissions at Winona State University as well as the Office of Student Affairs at Minnesota Southeast Technical College invite you and your students to attend Diversity Recruitment Day. This event will be held on April 21, 2016, from 9:15am - 3pm in East Hall at Winona State University.

Diversity Recruitment Day is for underrepresented, underserved, first generation and diverse students in 9th - 12th grades (see definition listed below). This program is designed to provide empowering information through admissions and academic sessions led by the Minnesota State College and University System administrators and faculty and the Minnesota Department of Education.

Students will acquire information and strategies for being successful throughout high school as well as practical tools to assist them in making the transition from high school to college. The day's schedule will consist of admission presentations, campus tours, student panels and academic sessions. The event flyer (PDF) is also available for download.

Diversity Recruitment Day, including lunch, is provided at no cost to the student participants, their parents/guardians or to your schools. For more information on how to RSVP, please contact Ne'Angela Scott at NScott@winona.edu.

The Inclusion and Diversity Office, our partners and our co-sponsors applaud your dedicated interest and commitment to participating in our Diversity Recruitment Day. We commend you, too, for recognizing how important it is for all students to know and believe that college is possible! We look forward to seeing you and your students on Diversity Recruitment Day.
