Diversity and Climate Campus Forum

Chancellor Wiley invites all faculty and staff to hear more about campus efforts to create a welcoming, diverse and inclusive campus and to celebrate our successes at the eighth annual Diversity and Climate Campus Forum, to be held from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, at Memorial Union.

Titled “Diversity: Engagement, Resistance, Change,” the daylong event has been planned by a cross-campus committee and will feature a program of speakers, multicultural performances and discussion sessions.

The event’s keynote speaker will be Nobel Prize-nominated photojournalist, activist and author Jane Hamilton-Merritt, who has extensively chronicled the experience of the Hmong people.

Faculty members are encouraged to allow students to attend forum sessions as a substitute for a normal class meeting, wherever possible. Staff members may attend without loss of pay after receiving approval from their supervisor.
