Foundation Housing Services, which runs the University Village Apartments at Cal Poly Pomona, was awarded the Institutional Diversity Award by the Western Association for College and University Housing Officers (WACUHO) Diversity & Affirmative Action Committee at this year's annual conference in Palm Springs.
The diversity award not only recognizes Foundation Housing's diversity role modeling in its staffing, but also the promotion of understanding, enlightenment and support of diversity among residents and the university community through programming.
One of the series offered was the 6:00 Talks which addressed such controversial issues as the "Who Is Included or Excluded by Cultural Student Groups?," Remedial Education in the California State University System," "Sexual Harassment: Have We Gone Too Far or Not Far Enough?" and "Racial Profiling: A Mock Trial."
"As an auxiliary operation, it is very rewarding to be recognized for all of our efforts to support and further the educational mission of Cal Poly Pomona," said Jim M. Flader, director of Foundation Housing Services.
As part of the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., Foundation Housing Services provides students with apartment style living accommodations. Beyond the amenities, students benefit from residence life programming and support systems designed to supplement the higher education learning experience.
