UNH-SCSU Unity thru Hoops a success

This release was sent to us today:

The University of New Haven and Southern Connecticut State University Departments of Athletics hosted their inaugural 'Unity thru Hoops' event on Saturday in conjunction with the basketball teams’ Northeast-10 Conference doubleheader. The event focused on promoting diversity and fostering an environment of inclusion within the greater New Haven community.

Clubs and organizations from both Universities with similar goals partnered together and set up information tables in the lobby of Charger Gymnasium to share ideas about unity in a diverse population. Student groups from both institutions also performed dance routines between the women’s and men’s games. A new cheerleading group from the New Haven Boys and Girls Club also performed between games.

The 2011 ‘Unity thru Hoops’ partnership begins the annual event which will alternate between the UNH and SCSU campuses every year. The event exemplifies goal five of the NCAA Division II Strategic Plan which states to partner and build collaborative relationships with other organizations to support and enhance the diversity of student-athletes, administrators and coaches at the local, conference and national levels.
