Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Summit is an opportunity to elevate racial consciousness and understand how race affects your students lives and your classroom practice

A Model For Equity

TU has always been at the forefront of diversity and inclusion in a number of realms, and continues to do so. It hosts a wide variety of services, programming and research opportunities that are operating at the forefront of inclusive policy and advocacy for students, faculty, staff and the wider TU Community.

The DEI Summit aims to have the difficult but necessary conversations around campus climate, the intersection of college curriculum and cultural competency, top tier recruiting practices and retaining diversity once its been cultivated.

OIIE will be hosting the summit every fall.
