 Diversity and Inclusion Series  



Tenets of Higher Education:
Cultivating and promoting individual and collective thoughts and voices

The annual Diversity & Inclusion Series is a university-wide educational event that is created, coordinated, implemented, presented, and engaged in and provided by our campus community of students, staff, faculty and administrators.  Under the leadership of the four President’s Commissions on Disability, LGBTQI, Race & Ethnic Diversity, and Women, the series cultivates and promotes the development of our individual and collective thoughts and voices – respectfully, educationally, and with full rigor.
