Spring 2016 Dates for Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion

As you begin preparing your coursework for spring, please consider incorporating Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI) into your syllabus and encouraging your students to attend.  The CODI series focuses on the complexities of group and individual identities and how they influence one another. The gatherings provide a safe space for members of the campus community to consider the often sensitive issues surrounding identity. CODI has been the committee's attempt to expose and treat the various ills we see reflected on our campus and in our community--xenophobia, homophobia, racism, sexism, classism, ignorance, apathy, etc., as well as celebrate our differences.

The series will be held from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in BMU 210 on: February 17, March 2, March 23, April 6, and April 27. Themes and topics will be announced soon.
