“All I did was say, ‘Made in the image and likeness of God, what does it mean to you?’” DEI Director Mrs. Patsy Vargas explains. The Inclusivity Campaign, organized by the DEI Initiative, was an opportunity for students and faculty alike to consider the phrase which embodies Mitty’s Catholic identity. Among other aspects of the campaign, members of the Mitty Community created postcards to represent what the phrase meant to them.
