You might know what diversity LOOKS like, but have you ever thought about what it SOUNDS like? Check out this fantastic project on linguistic diversity at GMU, featuring a few CISA students, faculty, and staff!
You, too, can be part of this project by signing up at iammason.gmu.edu.
From ths site: “At George Mason University, we bring together one of the most diverse, talented academic communities. We celebrate our ranking as one of the most diverse university campuses in the United States. Diversity of perspectives and approaches in turn fuels innovation and breeds ideas. New ideas nurture our enterprising spirit and inspire action. Indeed, diversity is a hallmark of Mason university life.
But what does diversity sound like? All speech is accented and this project invites us to hear each other in a new way—a symphony and celebration of speech accents at Mason. In the coming months, we will be adding to the number of speakers on this site and we invite you to take part!”
