Promote Sac State Becoming Showcase: Advancing the AICP (2024)

Highlights from the 2024 Showcase

Our campus came together to mark the wonderful progress that we've made toward fulfilling the Antiracism and Inclusive Campus Action Plan (AICAP). We were so happy that so many Hornets were able to join us for our Promote Sac State Becoming Showcase: Advancing the AICP.

The showcase allowed our campus to share and promote high-impact practices and demonstrate our progress and continued commitment to becoming an antiracism and inclusive campus. We highlighted research and many services, programs, campus projects, and initiatives that have been developed, institutionalized, and sustained toward fulfilling the goals of the AICAP. During the day, a graphic facilitator visually captured the essence and key themes of the Showcase. Over 40 campus partners shared how their work is leading Sac State toward becoming an antiracist and inclusive campus, demonstrating our collective commitment to progress.We also hosted a resource fair, a satellite Stinger Studio Makerspace, and a Storytelling Booth. We had nearly 500 participants who came to witness how far we've come in our effort to BECOME a more inclusive and just campus where we all feel valued and that we belong.
