First Session of RE-Thinking Diversity Summer Series: Dialogue on Race Planned for June 6
Posted: Tuesday, May 29, 2018
This summer the Office of Diversity Initiatives at the University of Evansville will offer one-hour session that will provide interactive dialogue to allow campus participants to think and discuss about how to re-think everything you ever knew about race.
The sessions will provide solution-oriented steps and strategies as well as resources for participants.
The first session will be offered on Wednesday, June 6, titled, "Past to the Present," and participants must RSVP by Monday, June 4. The discussion will center around racism in the United States and its long and appalling past. It will be presented by Rob Shelby, UE assistant professor of sociology.
The session will begin at noon at the Diversity Resource Center, located at 436 Weinbach Avenue. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch but drinks and snacks will also be offered.
Sessions are intended for any campus members and friends (i.e., faculty, staff, students, alumni or administrators). Anyone attending all of the sessions will be given a certificate of completion of Diversity and Inclusion at UE at the end of the summer sessions.
