Unity in Diversity is an annual diversity engagement event organized by the Graduate Student Association (GSA) at the University of Nevada, Reno. The event aims to promote unity through understanding and appreciation of differences. This year, we are extending the impact of Unity in Diversity to include the critical need to raise environmental awareness and help change our impact on the Earth, ensuring that diverse generations to come will be able to enjoy a healthy and comfortable environment on our planet.
