You are welcome here posters, t-shirts, and stickers
The WMU Haenicke Institute for Global Education is proud to be an advocate of diversity and has developed a “You are welcome here” poster to assure students of this fact. Everyone is invited to print a poster or submit poster requests to the Haenicke Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org. The poster was designed by WMU graphic and printing science major Nastasia Harden. The campaign is also available as a t-shirt and/or sticker, t-shirts are purchasable for $10 in 2425 Ellsworth Hall.
Post a welcoming note
Starting Monday, February 27, the WMU University libraries across campus will invite everyone to leave welcoming post-it messages on a welcome board near the entrance. They invite units across campus and in the community to follow suit. Some examples of instructions are:
