Meet the Diversity Commission: One Step Closer to Inclusivity at AUC

Excellence and Diversity. AUC students are proud of being the first. The second, however, is a cause of tension among members of the AUC community. Efforts previously made by students to raise awareness for issues of diversity, such as Glass and the Feminist Committee, have proven to be only temporarily successful. As a long-term solution to the issue, Andy O’Daab, a third-year Social Science major and AUCSA treasurer, has recently founded the Diversity Commission, a new student body that aims to make AUC more inclusive.

Their personal experiences with the 2016 election reveal a mixture of shock, fear, hope for the future, and a strong will to fight back.
