#HereatIWU began as a student campaign to bring awareness to the Illinois Wesleyan University community regarding micro and macro agressions experienced by underrepresented students on campus at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. A coalition of students organized a Twitter hashtag that allowed students to freely express themselves online. After a high response, a speaking forum dedicated to this event produced one of the most highly attended events on campus. Students, faculty, and staff members all attended this Saturday night event. Three years later, this event has become an outlet for students that is supported by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
