I’m happy to report that our diversity-themed banner has been installed at the Des Plaines campus, in the corridor by the cafeteria. Check it out!
Thanks to the following entities / departments / organizations at Oakton that have helped to make this possible — including the Diversity Council, Art Club, Office of College Relations and Office of Student Affairs. Many members of the Oakton community — including students, staff and faculty — have contributed to the banner as well.
The banner will be at the Des Plaines campus for the time being, and it’s my understanding that it will “migrate” to the Skokie campus sometime soon (although I don’t know when).
The banner isn’t done yet; it’s an evolving project that will include more text contributions in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned for updates!
