The Special Collections and University Archives department of Old Dominion University Libraries commemorates the 85th anniversary of Old Dominion University (ODU) by creating an exhibit celebrating the history of diversity on campus. The exhibit features a timeline of social change and notable firsts at ODU regarding all aspects of diversity including, but not limited to, African-American history, women's history, and the LGBTQ and international communities.
