4th Annual DEI Summit
In alignment with our institutional commitment to providing ongoing, innovative, and transformative DEI training and learning experiences, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will host Carroll University’s 4th Annual DEI Summit, on November 4, 2022. This year’s theme of “Our Collective Healing” highlights various aspects of social justice, racial reconciliation, and actionable steps toward change as a campus community. Campus community members can expect opportunities to learn, reflect and actively engage in a hybrid of in-person and virtual workshops.
The DEI Summit aims to:
- Increase acceptance as demonstrated by folks feeling personally responsible for engagement.
- Create a sense of urgency for doing the work across all facets of campus.
- Increase integration of inclusive practices in curricular and co-curricular activities.
- Have participants leave with practical applications/artifacts to continue their journey.
Carroll University is committed to cultivating and sustaining a safe, welcoming, and inclusive living and learning environment for every member of our campus community. The Campus climate Response Protocol advances this commitment by providing a mechanism by which individuals may report incidents of real or perceived bias, exclusion, or inequity and seek support through campus resources in addressing those concerns.
