Critical Conversations

This year, our national climate has brought us to a reckoning moment in history, where we are talking deeper about racism, inclusion, and equity. For many, dealing with the effects of systemic racism are a part of everyday life. It is essential that we have honest and productive conversations about race, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the impact not only on individuals, but our institution. Starting in 2020, Critical Conversations grapple specifically with these topics, as well as the impacts of COVID-19, the 2020 elections, and the U.S. borders. Our topics will evolve with today's realities, and we urge you to help us select future conversations. Submit an event or input on a future critical conversation.
