Diversity Summit to celebrate progress, address challenges

October 31, 2017

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit will give campus community members the opportunity to learn about the work completed during the past year on both universitywide and unit-based plans to improve diversity, equity and inclusion.

Events from the summit, set for Nov. 6-10, include a keynote speaker, an interactive panel and a ceremonial groundbreaking for a campus multicultural center.

“The summit is a way of making it clear to our community that diversity, equity and inclusion are part of the fabric of our community; that DEI is not a fad,” says Robert Sellers, vice provost for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer.

“This week of central and unit activities is an opportunity to hold ourselves publicly accountable to our plan and to celebrate our accomplishments. It is a chance to shine a light on what is working well and to move on from what is not working.”
