Fraser says the office Equity Committee put up the flags to increase awareness of the international diversity of students on campus. They’ve held two contests already – one for Registrar’s Office staff and another for everyone else – and awarded prizes to those who identified the most flags. Pharmacy student Karla Millar won a sweatshirt from the Centre Shop this month after identifying 55 of the colorful flags. Office staffer Kathy Link won use of an R-Lot parking spot for a month in the office contest. Fraser says the plan is to fly the flags from the ceiling until August.
