Diversity and Inclusiveness at Adams State University

We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.

Gender-Neutral Bathroom Signs Focus on What's Inside — The Toilet

A new pilot program will be utilizing free gender neutral bathroom signs generously donated in collaboration with GLAAD. "The restroom is a touchy subject. No one really wants to say ‘toilet’ (or loo, or commode). You just want to know where to go when you gotta go. And we get that. All-gender restroom signs alleviate the confusion. We’re highlighting what’s behind the stall with a handy, familiar graphic."  The icon is from The Good Men Project and Sam Killermann at It's Pronounced Metrosexual. His site offers resources to "advance social equity…that help people to be better people." http://www.mydoorsign.com/all-gender-restroom-signs
