DE&I Initiatives

ReimagineTU plans to advocate for an increase in multicultural service providers to provide the much-needed inclusive empathy to a campus full of people from various backgrounds and ethnicities. Also, with the removal of Diamond Dollars this upcoming year, this leaves several students in a stressful state because of food insecurity. For example, with this removal of currency, most basic meals at places such as Chick-fil-A and Wingstop could cost up to two meals due to a couple of cents going over the one-meal limit, eventually leading to compounding problems for students with a finite number of meal swipes. To potentially eliminate this problem, ReimagineTU proposes working towards a partnership with “Swipe Out Hunger” --a national nonprofit organization committed to ending college student hunger—as well as creating an environment where meal swipes an be donated, shared, or “rolled over” throughout the semester. A student’s priority should not be where their next meal will come from. Moreover, presently, our campus struggles with unequal and unkempt restroom facilities, thus impacting inclusivity and hygiene. To address these issues, ReimagineTU’s Bathroom Equality initiative aims to install free menstrual product dispensers in all bathrooms, increase the number of trash cans for better hygiene, prioritize restroom maintenance, and potentially add more gender-neutral bathrooms to create inclusive spaces for all students. Finally, students at Temple University currently have to pay exceedingly high prices for new or used course textbooks. We aim to work with Temple to ensure that there is a guaranteed reserve of money for students who need assistance paying for textbooks.

Diversifying Tuttleman Therapists

Temple University prides itself on being a diverse campus, and giving people from colorful backgrounds access to various opportunities. Unfortunately, this is not reflected among staff who work for Tuttleman Counseling Services. ReimagineTU believes that every student should feel represented and safe when choosing a mental health provider.

Breaking it down...

ReimagineTU plans to advocate for more mental health providers that Temple students are able to relate and empathize with their lived experiences. An increase in multicultural service providers may also empower students to actively seek help and take charge of their mental health. This initiative also creates room for more mental health providers with specialized interests.
