Did You Know? Diversity Tree

an image of diversity tree at Purdue University

Located outside the Class of 1950 Lecture Hall, the Diversity Tree celebrates the National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council and is often painted with the letters of those member organizations. Its inspiration comes from gathering spaces called plots founded on historically Black college and university campuses, where student organizations assemble and promote their events. Plots differ by size and shape from campus to campus and may be designated by bricks, benches, painted trees, marble stones, or memorial gardens.
