This week, the University of Florida will celebrate People Awareness Week, aimed at encouraging students and faculty to adopt a lifelong commitment to learning about diversity.
The celebration will include art, dance, food, film and music. PAW 2003 is designed to encourage acceptance, respect and appreciation of diversity in relation to race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status and religious affiliation.
As part of the program, awards have been established to recognize student, faculty, staff and community members who have made significant humanitarian contributions on campus and in the community. Four award recipients will be recognized at the President's Humanitarian Award Reception on Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Rion Ballroom in the Reitz Union.
