About the Campaign

The You Belong poster campaign is intended to offer a visual representation of diversity through language with multiple translations of “you belong.”

Posters are created in collaboration with language speakers and members of our UWL community. Recognizing that translations are not always seamless between cultures, individuals used their own autonomy to capture the spirit of belonging: to be valued, seen, heard, cared for, and an essential member of our UWL family.

The translations are gifts to campus. They are individuals’ perceptions of emotions that encapsulate belonging under careful contemplation. Because languages themselves are complex, translations themselves can be diverse. No two individuals may translate You Belong the same which further honors not only diversity and inclusion but also belonging.

We acknowledge that there are many languages in our world and the You Belong poster campaign will continue throughout the academic year with more languages to be represented.

Submit a language translation

We encourage any individual whose first language is not English to share their own translation/interpretation of You Belong using the following link.
