Florida Atlantic University’s Diversity Platform Council, Student Government Association and the homecoming planning committee partnered together to create a physical depiction of diversity on campus. More than 50 students, faculty and staff, along with artists from Unconventional, LLC., all came together to paint a diversity mural at the end of the Breezeway near the campus recreation and fitness center.

The “Blossoming” mural features a rose in three stages of growth, as well as people helping one another, a graduation cap and a book. The lead artist was Marlon Pruz.   

“The artwork transforms this area of campus and is a true testament to the importance of diversity and inclusion at FAU,” said Andrea Guzman Oliver, Ph.D., associate vice president of student outreach and diversity.
