Diversity Landmarks Wall of Fame

The Diversity Advisory Council recently honored winners of the Spring 2017 Diversity Landmarks Quotation contest. Honorees have their winning submissions permanently mounted on the Diversity Landmark Wall of Fame in the Savannah Center Lobby.

Congratulations to this year’s winners and their chosen quotations:

Demetra Andrews, assistant professor of marketing, submitted:

“Innovation requires diverse ideas and perspectives – not a culture of sameness.” – Jeff Wolf

Jonathyne Briggs, associate professor and department chair for the department of history, submitted:

“I believe that those we most often exclude from the normal life of society, people with disabilities, have profound lessons to teach us. When we do include them, they add richly to our lives and add immensely to our world.” – Jean Vanier
