Diversity Awareness Programming (DAP)

Diversity Awareness Programming Board (DAP)

The Diversity Awareness Programming Board is a student led group under the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. Their purpose is to stimulate interest, heighten awareness, and support the initiatives and contributions of minorities and underrepresented groups. DAP sponsors cultural, educational, social, and entertainment activities to engage the Radford University community. All activities are offered free of charge.

Supported through Student Activity Fees and administered entirely by students, the Diversity Awareness Programming Board is open to all Radford University students. Becoming a member of DAP will afford one the opportunity to expand their interests and abilities, engage with the student body in important and meaningful ways, and allow them to put their personal creativity to work. The Diversity Awareness Programming Board is always looking for new members to bring fresh ideas to the table and new perspectives on existing programming. There are a variety of leadership opportunities available within the organization.
