Her Color Shines

3rd Annual Her Color Shines

April 14, 2018

University Hall Auditorium


This event was created to acknowledge and award young women of color (faculty, staff, and student) at Indiana State University for their exceptional leadership, academic performance, and resilience. Each year different populations of women will also be recognized. Last year, we acknowledged the phenomenal accomplishments of our Black students, faculty and staff.

This year we are adding and acknowledging the remarkable students, faculty, and staff of Asian descent. So, Black and Hispanic/Latina, and Asian faculty, staff, and students will be able to let their light shine.

This event has been in the making for the past year. It is our attempt to create an event that will truly be remarkable and memorable.

As stated, the event will begin with an actual red carpet walk between 5:30-6pm. The program will begin promptly at 6pm. Our colors for the evening are black, white, and cream. If you do not have those colors, please wear whatever you have in your closet. Just remember, this is a red carpet event; so no jeans!
