FARGO — Some at North Dakota State University are weaving their way into a legacy of inclusion.

Eight students and faculty each got a piece of fabric to weave into the university's Tapestry of Inclusion display during a ceremony inside the Memorial Union Wednesday, March 31.

They were nominated by others in the campus community for speaking up for diversity across campus, based on gender, race and sexual orientation, among other traits.

Those who got nominated said this recognition is especially important to shed more light on inclusion, after recent alleged hate-related incidents on campus.

"I know firsthand, not feeling like you belong is the worst feeling in the world, and so my goal and my mission in life is to continue this work to help students," said Meghan Yerhot, a doctoral student at NDSU.
