  1. Dialogue on Racism, White Supremacy, and Anti-Racism, Sept. 10. The goal of this dialogue--sponsored by the Dean of Students Office and the Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion--is to provide a space for our campus community to ask questions, to share how these incidents have impacted them, and discuss how the campus community can work together to address racial and social justice issues. We will be dividing groups into breakout sessions based on how participants identify themselves racially to minimize the harm. Sept. 10, 3 p.m. All participants must register here before attending the session. Further details here.
