The Spanish Club practices the Spanish language and strives to enlighten people on the Hispanic culture by incorporating information about a specific Hispanic country at each of their meetings. Any student can join whether they are fluent in Spanish or just wants to brush up on their Spanish, regardless of their major. We also aim to spread the language and culture through social events.
In order to join the Spanish club, a student must pay a $5 membership fee or $15 to receive a Spanish Club t-shirt. If a student wants to join the Spanish Club, they can contact the club advisor, Dr. Edris Brannen, or the club president, Victoria Merritt.

OFFICE OF STUDENT DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Our mission is simply to educate on diversity, enhance equity, and embrace inclusivity.
- Educate through trainings and intentional conversations, we educate by increasing awareness of one's own identities (internal, external, social, organizational, and cultural) and how you relate, respect, and accept the identities of others.
- Enhance understanding of social inequalities and how they continue individually and systemically through biases, and how biases influence interaction with others.
- Embrace differences and use them synergistically to improve intercultural effectiveness, and inclusive excellence to develop strategies to combat bias.
