Join us Wednesday, April 1, 2020 from 4-5:30 p.m. in Wilson Library, Pleasants Family Assembly Room. This discussion provides an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to express their thoughts, concerns, and themes surrounding discrimination and harassment on campus including, but not limited to, incidents related to race, religion, sex, gender, gender expression, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, etc. RSVP for the listening session.
While an RSVP is not required to attend, we invite you to RSVP in advance so that we can ensure sufficient seating and refreshments.
In November 2019, the University announced an agreement was reached with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) resolving a complaint filed in April 2019 following the “Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics and Possibilities” conference. As part of that agreement, the University agreed to hold these sessions to hear from the broader campus community about their experiences surround prohibited discrimination and harassment.
We are committed to creating and fostering a campus free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, where everyone within our community feels welcome and safe. We hope you’ll join us for this important conversation.
