At ASUA, we know that everyone learns best in different ways. Because of this, we provide our DEI information through many pathways including newsletters, in-service training, posters, and more! Above is a slideshow of "Toilet Talks," posters that are displayed in bathrooms to read while you sit. They are in reverse-chronological order.
