On Tuesday, August 12 the Provost Advisory Committee on Diversity kicked off its initiative with renowned speaker Tim Wise, who provided us a wonderful opportunity to begin the dialogue on how we as a campus community can move ourselves from a culture of mere tolerance to one of acceptance. His afternoon presentation engaged both faculty and staff through many thought-provoking topics and discussions. To learn more about Tim Wise, visit his website at: http://www.timwise.org/
Stay tuned for more events in support of this initiative. Additional information will be available on the diversity webpage in the near future to keep everyone informed of the ongoing activities of the committee.
