Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - Auburn University fans have been encouraged to wear the Auburn Unity T-shirt on Friday, October 9 to demonstrate their support for the Together We Will initiative. The initiative was created by the Auburn Athletics Task Force on Inclusion and Race Relations and strives to “advance the Auburn Family in its quest toward positive action on diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
Through its availability for purchase at the AU Team Shop or Auburn University Bookstore, the Auburn Unity T-shirt generates funding for the new Together We Will Scholarship. The scholarship was created to develop a larger and more diverse student body while enhancing the “access, affordability, and academic quality” of the university.
Developed by Auburn University’s Auburn Athletics Task Force on Inclusion and Race Relations, the Auburn Unity Symbol displayed on the Unity T-shirt represents “the oneness we seek to instill in our teams and throughout our community,” Auburn director of athletics Allen Greene said. “I encourage the Auburn Family to embrace what makes us unique and enthusiastically support Together We Will.”
