The unprecedented events in our nation are actively challenging us to choose between comfort or courage in how we learn, teach and work. The loss of connection has impacted the ways we interact in a physically separated world. The theme of this semester’s virtual Diversity and Inclusion Summit is The Power of Community—Courage, Healing, and Unity.

The goal of the summit is to provide a foundation to help the university build community resilience, foster mutual respect and promote empowerment, visibility, validation and unity among students, faculty and staff. We will explore the multiple intersecting events that affect our campus community, because they also impact the broader community of our region and our nation.

Virtual sessions

  • The Power of Community: A “Boulder” Talk Show
  • Gratitude with attitude: Queer community anywhere and everywhere
  • Practicing Courage: Microaggressions and So You Want to Talk About Race with Nikki McCord
  • A Wild Heart: The Path to Healing

Our need for a more inclusive, diverse and equitable environment has deepened the importance of courage, healing and unity as we move forward together through these uncertain times. We hope you will join us remotely to engage with, draw strength from and be inspired by the power of our community.
