SPARKS is a campus-wide, collaborative, multidisciplinary, and personalized effort that will take place at Pitt-Johnstown and extend to the neighboring communities. The project aims to enhance awareness and engagement related to diversity and inclusion, sustainably engage Pitt-Johnstown and the neighboring communities in promoting diversity and inclusion, and create safe spaces and a supportive environment for all.
