Unity Week at Brooklyn College

Many Identities, One Community

Monday, April 13 – Friday, April 17, 2015

Students who participate in Unity Week will be engaged in learning about the different cultures at Brooklyn College. Through the various programs and activities, students will gain a greater appreciation for our campus diversity. Each program encourages the members of our community to commit to building unity on campus.

Unity Week provides opportunities for working together to build a dynamic and stronger campus community while engaging a generation of prospective college students. This year's theme, "Many Identities, One Community," reflects the goals of Unity Week.
