SLHS Community Conversations

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the SLHS community is gathering for ongoing community conversations regarding issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity.  

  • Book clubs in which faculty-students-staff meet to talk about books that address challenging issues (e.g., How to be an Antiracist by author and historian Ibram X. Kendi). 
  • Small-group discussions around films, talks, and campus events regarding diversity, inclusion and equity.
  • Town-hall dialogues facilitated by the diversity-equity-inclusion committee.
  • Re-examination of what “professionalism” means in our field in the context of diversity and inclusion
  • Ongoing examination of our curriculum with lens of diversity, equity and inclusion. The SLHS faculty is committed to ongoing discussion and dialogue regarding how to integrate and explicate issues around diversity, inclusion and culture across our curriculum.  This commitment includes specifically identifying topics related to diversity, inclusion and culture on course syllabi.
