I am writing to invite you to attend a very special event on Tuesday, Apr. 28 at 2:30pm. We are proud to host CSI’s inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Symposium on that day. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Derald Wing Sue, a prominent psychologist and author whose groundbreaking work on the psychology of racism has placed him at the forefront of cross-cultural studies. This symposium is a component of our Faculty Diversity Strategic Plan, which was developed by the College-wide Diversity Council and the Faculty Subcommittee.

Dr. Sue’s presentation is sure to spark many significant conversations across campus. His discussion will be followed by a panel presentation on diversity-related “Best Practices: Challenges, Opportunities, and Successes” in higher education. I encourage all students, faculty, and staff to attend this important event.
