‘Undeterred: Syracuse University’s Unique Connection to Affirmative Action and Our Next Steps’ Featured Discussion at The D.E.I.A. Symposium Oct. 3
A panel discussion, “Undeterred: Syracuse University’s Unique Connection to Affirmative Action and Our Next Steps,” will be featured as part of The D.E.I.A. Symposium, hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Tuesday, Oct. 3. The discussion will be held at 1 p.m. in Goldstein Auditorium.
As efforts to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility are increasingly under scrutiny in higher education, the symposium is one way to illuminate the continuing efforts of the University to cultivate a campus that is welcoming and inclusive to all.
Panelists for the discussion will be Chancellor Kent Syverud; Vice Chancellor, Provost and Chief Academic Officer Gretchen Ritter and Senior Vice President and Chief Student Experience Officer Allen Groves. Associate Provost for Strategic Initiatives Marcelle Haddix will moderate the discussion.
“This is an important opportunity for our campus community to come together and better understand the University’s work in DEIA and the collective efforts underway during this crucial time in higher education and the challenges for that work,” Haddix says. “We invite students, staff and faculty to share their thoughts and ask questions of the panelists as we all work toward the advancement of our shared commitment to the values of DEIA.”
Questions for the panel discussion must be pre-submitted.
During the daylong symposium, the breadth of DEIA efforts—research, initiatives and creative work—across the University will be on full display. Students, staff and faculty will showcase their work through workshops, presentations and posters, representing the substantial commitment by people across campus to DEIA and the themes of the University’s DEIA Strategic Plan.
The campus community is invited to register by Monday, Sept. 25 for the panel discussion and any number of the sessions during the symposium, being held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Schine Student Center.
