Social Justice Lecture Series

The Social Justice Lecture Series, launched by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in 2012, introduces a broad range of topics to the campus community. Guest lecturers present topics that encourage critical thinking, provoke healthy debate, and challenge assumptions.

First Friday Socials

Since 2006 Auxiliary Services has helped coordinate a regular series of First Friday University Socials. This initiative, directed to all faculty, staff, retirees and graduate students, is intended to provide the University community a casual setting for informal discussion and socializing. Such informal gatherings often lead to more productive work relationships and an appreciation for diversity. For several years we have been partnering with departments across campus to sponsor each Social.
