This session brings to the table ideas about steps your departments can take to create success in our programs for both students and faculty.
Please join us on Thursday, October 7th at 12:15 pm in Hillel 101 for a conversation about ideas—some fully formed, others still in a nascent stage—developed in Art and Art History, Computer Science, and Chemistry.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion is a central tenant of W&L’s strategic plan.
The University has invested greatly in this effort, including creating a dedicated physical space for a Center for DE&I, allocating $10M in additional funding from the endowment to accelerate this work, and creating programming. W&L’s commitment to DE&I extends to all facets of the University including student life, academics, admissions, employee hiring, faculty recruitment and retention, and Institutional history.
The Harte Center and Academic Technologies are teaming up to host a luncheon series: Departmental Initiatives in DE&I.
If our institutional efforts toward diversity, inclusion, and equity are to be truly impactful, we need to find ways to share effective practices with each other. This series, highlighting departmental and programmatic DEI initiatives, is designed to create conversations about what all of us–every department, every program, every individual–can do to ensure that every student who arrives on our campus has the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential.
The luncheon series begins at the end of the month, highlighting the work of the Geology department.
