Fall 2020 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 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 partnered with Academic Affairs to host Carroll University’s Inaugural Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit, on February 24–27, 2020. The summit was held across campus, offering various modes of engagement, including lunch and learn sessions, interactive workshops and literature circles. A wide array topics, from utilizing intercultural and social justice frames to advocacy to engaging challenging dynamics in the classroom, were featured.
This year’s summit will be held virtually on October 26-30, 2020, during the celebration of Global Diversity Awareness Month and LGBTQIA History Month. Summit sessions will center on three focal areas:
- Identity, Power and Privilege
- Supporting the Success of Underrepresented Students in Higher Education
- Dismantling Racism and Systemic Oppression in Higher Education
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.
