Diversity in Aquatics Program founded by alums Shaun Anderson and Jayson Jackson

April, 2008

Prompted by concerns about the global rate of drowning and the racial disparities found within the drowning statistics, the Diversity in Aquatics Program (DAP) was founded by Shaun Anderson (BS H&HD 2001) and Jayson Jackson (BS Sci 1999), two former Penn State athletes.  DAP has created a number of events such as International Water Safety Day which encourages all children to learn to swim, and communicates both basic water safety and advanced aquatic activities.
