Seminole State College of Florida is embracing diversity with "Kaleidoscope Engagements," a series of activities, workshops and presentations intended to promote individualism and inclusion at the College.

The monthlong celebration, hosted by the Diversity Council and the Office of Diversity Initiatives & Engagement, began March 4 with "Allies Advance," a diversity training program for students, faculty and staff. Upcoming highlights include a performance by comedian Steffon on Thursday, March 17, and a wheelchair basketball game on Thursday, March 24, that will pit members of the Seminole State community against the team formerly known as the Orlando Magic Wheels. The comedy show will begin at noon in the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus Student Center (building C), and the wheelchair basketball game will tip off at noon in the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus Gymnasium (building H).
