Puget Sound Inclusive Space Project

The Puget Sound Inclusive Space Project is an opportunity for individuals to indicate their commitment to diversity by displaying a letter-sized flyer in a publically visible space. The poster reads: “This space respects all aspects of people including race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, age religion, ability, and documentation status”

Multicultural Student Services asks that participants be intentional when displaying these posters as they set a tone and expectation for the space in which they are displayed. If you have any questions, concerns or are interested in other educational resources, please get in touch.

The scholarship is to be awarded on an annual basis to a student who is enrolled or is committed to enroll full time at the University of Puget Sound. Preference will be given to students who identify as Hispanic and/or Latino. Applications are due by 5 p.m., March 31, 2014. For application, CHispA Leadership Scholarship Application.
