2023 Spring Equity Dialogue: Culture of Care
Monday, April 10 – Friday, April 14, 2023
The Office of Equity and Inclusion proudly presented Equity Week 2023: Culture of Care: "Face it, there is no eqUity and Inclusion without U & I, embrace it."
We programmed an action-packed week that included programs and performances conducted by our students, faculty, and staff. Sessions helped individuals develop and apply personal and professional practices that will build an inclusive environment, equitable student success rates, and employee career growth and fulfillment.
2022 Spring Equity Dialogue: Critical Race Theory
Our Spring Dialogue was held virtually on Thursday, February 24, 2022. Students, employees, and the community had an opportunity to get an understanding of CRT, away from the dramatized representations in the media. A specific focus was a discussion of criminal justice and the legal system. Almost 70 participants were able to learn how decisions are made and how the public can influence those decisions through a racial equity lens and what practices government agencies, schools, and the community can implement.
