As many of us recall from the November Diversity University: In Theory and Practice forum (full video can be found here), issues and questions regarding diversity and inclusion at Wesleyan have been very prominent this year. WSA President Zach Malter ’13 would like members of the Wesleyan community to come together once again to talk about the progress that has been made since last semester’s forum, and what more has to be done in order for Wesleyan to live up to its “Diversity University” title, specifically as it relates to the classroom experience. In his own words:
The follow-up to last semester’s Diversity University: In Theory and In Practice, this panel will allow students to engage with prominent faculty members and administrators on the most pressing campus climate issues. The focus will be on issues of diversity as they relate to the classroom experience, but the conversation will by no means be limited to that.
The event will take place this Wednesday at 7PM in Exley 150. The moderator will be Professor Lisa Dierker, and the confirmed moderators are:
- President Michael Roth
- Alysha Warren
- Vice President Mike Whaley
- Professor Antonio Gonzalez
- Professor & English Chair Sean McCann
- Professor & Dean Ishita Mukerji
- Professor & Faculty Vice Chair Andrew Szegedy-Maszak
- Cherkira Lashley ’15
- Zachary Malter ’13
- Andrew Martin ’15
Also, if you wish to ask a question at the forum, you may submit it online prior to tomorrow evening’s event via this link that was emailed to students earlier today. You can also join the Facebook event here.
Seriously, everyone: go to this.
