Creating a More Inclusive Campus & Community (Flashpoint)

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Student Success Center room 4044

No registration necessary.

The October 13th Flashpoint considers how access and inclusion impact the culture of the university, inside and outside of the classroom. Panelists will discuss continuing and new efforts at becoming a more inclusive and welcoming university to students of all backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and experiences. Fostering meaningful dialogue to bring responsible social change, and ensuring free speech on campus, are two aspects of this larger conversation that our panelists will consider.
