About the Lecture Series

The Inclusive Community Series, hosted by the Office of Strategic Initiatives and Global Affairs, provides an opportunity for our campus to make strides towards inclusive excellence. This lecture series is guided by themes emerging from our 2022-23 Climate Study. Each speaker will provide us with an inclusive perspective based on their areas of expertise. As a community, we will have an opportunity to process what we heard in our growth circles, identify possible impacts on our community, and provide recommendations on next steps toward inclusive excellence.
