The purpose of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) programming we conducted over the 2020-2021 academic year was to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to engage in positive dialogue on race, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We are concluding our programming with the Diversity & Leadership Conference. This virtual conference will be the springboard to our 2021-2022 DEI events. We look forward to your participation and hope you take full advantage of this opportunity. Our best days are ahead, and we are stronger and better together.
