The Evolution of Values Day

Values Day traces its beginning to Stetson’s eighth President H. Douglas Lee, who founded an annual town hall to discuss diversity and inclusion in the early 1990s.

In 2004 the name, Diversity Day, was added and this was changed in 2012 to Values Day, a day dedicated to the university’s commitment to its core values – personal growth, intellectual development, global citizenship, and personal and social responsibility.

This year, Values Day 2019 will be embodying the theme of “Activism Through the Arts.” Phil Kaye, a Japanese-American spoken-word poet, will be the keynote speaker. He will be giving his address at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 24, in Lee Chapel. Cultural Credit will be available.
