Faculty, staff and students talk diversity, inclusion

President Shepard and the President’s Task Force for Diversity Equity and Inclusion invited students, faculty and staff to a Cultural Consciousness Appreciation Luncheon on Monday, Nov. 10 in VU 565.

The luncheon was a further effort to draw from the experiences of those on campus and gather our ideas about how the University can further improve our diversity efforts through training to benefit the entire campus community. In President Shepard’s opening Convocation remarks this year he stated that “We will be exploring and planning courses you can choose to attend on topics like critical cultural competence – again on university time and at university expense.” President Shepard and the members of the task force are hoping for further help from the campus community with this initiative.
