They learn about the diversity of human experiences and how our relationships with each other create a deeper understanding and acceptance of our similarities. Everyone at Sierra can take advantage of opportunities to learn about others through the Student Engagement Centers programming, People and Culture Days, and other campus events.Karin Green, Support Specialist
