Student Affairs fosters cultural awareness through its diverse programming, which is designed to encourage you to share, explore and be accepting of individual and collective differences across cultures.
Showing its willingness to embrace difference, the student body, in conjunction with the Student Government Association (SGA), has created the Wildcat Commitment:
“JWU’s Denver Campus is a learning community where we celebrate the unique qualities of all people, no matter their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, sexual identity, class, ability or age. The JWU student body pledges to stand up and speak out for social justice, empowerment, respect and acceptance of all people. We will promote a community that is free from hate, harassment and prejudice, where differing opinions are supported and respected, and diversity celebrated. However, if these opinions hurt and/or threaten others, we will act swiftly to ensure the safety and well being of our campus community. Together, we will make a difference.”
The Coexist LoungeLocated just inside the front doors to the library, you will find a welcoming and comfortable meeting space with plenty of resources covering a variety of diversity issues.
Programs Multicultural programming provides a variety of eye-opening and fun events, including comedy acts, group discussions, special guests/speakers, social and educational events, field trips in the Denver Metro area and much more.
Unity Council The Unity Council was created to promote inclusiveness and understanding at JWU. The Council is made up of representatives of the Denver Campus’ identity-based student organizations, and acts as a student-driven network of support for our identity-based groups and provides educational programming for the campus around issues of understanding, social justice and pluralism.
The Vagina Monologues Hailed by The New York Times as “funny and poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” The Vagina Monologues is performed each academic year on the Denver Campus.
The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than 12 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.
