Inclusive Spaces at the College

Information on some inclusive spaces in the college and on campus.

Celebrating Diversity Lounge

The Celebrating Diversity Lounge (CDL) was designed with the purpose of celebrating diversity and supporting Chemistry graduate students from historically excluded groups with a space separate from labs. Normalization of Diversity and Equity (NODE) hopes that everyone will join them in utilizing the space as a meeting place, location for events, another workplace, and a lounge while keeping the original purpose of the lounge in mind.
