As a college and institution of higher learning, it is our mission to promote intellectual inquiry and effective civic engagement within the context of respect for diversity. Our ability to educate is one tool for making change in the world. We can demand change in our community, but first, we have to educate our community on why that change is necessary.
In 2020, we launched our College Conversations series to highlight research by faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences that aligns with our initiatives to address racism and encourage diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its forms.
Our Allyship and Antiracism series featured faculty whose research focused on identifying racism and topics related to allyship and antiracism. Learn more about our Allyship and Antiracism series and watch videos from each presentation.
This fall, we will feature presentations about diversity initiatives in a variety of disciplines in our college with a Spotlight on Diversity series. The series kicks off Thursday, August 26 with “Religion, Race, and Ethnicity,” which will highlight the new concentration in our Department of Religious Studies.
The series continues the fourth Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. It is free and open to the public, but registration is required for each session.
