We strive to eliminate discrimination under any basis. Anyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, veteran status, or academic achievement is welcome to be a part of SPECTRUM. We are an organization that provides a safe non-judgmental space to share ideas and to interact with one another.
"This March will mark the third consecutive year in which SPECTRUM, a registered student organization at Arkansas Tech University, has hosted an event that seeks to provide any interested students with information relevant to sexual health. A few examples of topics include unplanned pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted disease prevention, sexual assault resources, consent and healthy relationships. Arkansas Tech University is content neutral as it relates to the free speech of its students, faculty, staff and registered student organizations and seeks to provide venues for individuals and organizations to share their views in a way that does not interrupt the educational process."UPDATE II: I've confirmed there's no evidence a dime of state money has been spent in the past nor will it be spent this week on this event. This group CAN apply to a student government group for funding for events (that money comes from student fees, not state appropriation) but it has not even done that for this event. The event typically has a few students with tables offering information.
