This month, we are March-ing Toward Inclusion every week with special programming, sponsored by an Office for Institutional Diversity Inclusive Excellence Grant.
Each week in our March Toward Inclusion series, we will focus on a different area of diversity that is often overlooked and celebrate what makes our campus community unique. In partnership with many of our wonderful departments, we will hold a tabling event where students can pick up FREE swag, participate in the featured department's diversity activity, and sign-up for the corresponding Lunch and Learn event taught by an A&S faculty member.
The Lunch and Learn events include engaging and informative activities focused on the spotlighted area of diversity, more swag, and free lunch for attendees! The Lunch and Learns are open to all A&S graduates and undergraduates. Please share with your students and colleagues widely! The schedule is:
