GammaSAID Unique Week

GammaSAID’s Annual Unique Week encourages students to participate in a social media campaign and reach out to other majors and student groups on campus in events and activities promoting diversity and inclusion.

September 19-25, 2021

Taking Place Wherever YOU Are!

 

This week gives us the opportunity to celebrate the diversity we have at UT Dallas, but also gives us the chance to encourage that diversity within our chapter. Our aim is to connect our members to the insurance industry, while using our resources to promote diversity and inclusion within the program.
