CALS Equity & Diversity Lunch and Learn: Making sense of climate in CALS – Dec. 4

Please join the CALS Equity & Diversity Committee for the committee’s next event in the Lunch and Learn Series, “Making Sense of Climate in CALS: A Discussion of the USDA Civil Rights Review in CALS and the Campus Climate Survey.” The event will take place Monday, Dec. 4 from noon – 1 p.m. in room 1520 of the Microbial Sciences Building. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches.

This discussion and workshop will provide an update on the USDA Civil Rights review conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and CALS in the spring of 2017. The purpose of the review was to assess selected CALS-based units and departments on issues related to diversity, climate and inclusion, and offer recommendations for how to improve. CALS Associate Dean for Research Bill Barker will lead us through a summary of the report.

Additionally, results of the campus climate survey conducted by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement (DDEEA) have been released, and several important take away messages were confirmed regarding campus climate. We will discuss these results and engage in discussion about how to use the information from both the USDA report and the campus climate survey to achievable action items within our spheres of influence.
