As part of Native American Heritage month, the Gay Johnson McDougall Center for Global Diversity and Inclusion will host a public art exhibition. The Third Annual Red Dresses Exhibit will be on display in various campus locations as a haunting representation of the many Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, girls, and two-spirit peoples lost to violence. As of 2016, 5,712 American Indian and Native Alaskan women and girls have been reported missing - of those, only 116 cases have been logged with the U.S. Department of Justice.
