Reframing the Conversation brings together experts from across campus and the community to spark important conversations around othering and belonging.
Aligning with the platform of One U Thriving, the goal of these quarterly meetings is to draw connections between the colleges, units, and divisions’ diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies. This session has been created as a place where those interested in diversity, equity, and inclusion can share successes and challenges – a place where we can discuss our work; engage colleagues; share resources and initiatives on racial equity, social justice, and community engagement.
In an effort to generate space for celebrations within the larger graduation event, we invite this year’s graduating class to create an extraordinary gesture (a symbol, sign, or some other way of marking the occasion) that honors not just your milestone, but the cultural and community traditions that have supported you toward your achievement. You may also choose to acknowledge the traditions that you’ve participated in and helped weave throughout campus—so that the University of Utah may always reflect the intersectionality of our student body. Join us in creating new ways of celebrating the whole of us.
