The University of Hartford is dedicated to building a culture that respects all of its members and celebrates their contributions. As Special Assistant to President Woodward for Diversity & Community Engagement, I’m asking individuals and organizations that have scheduled or are planning to schedule an event that addresses diversity, equity, and inclusion to please send information about the event to me.
Please email me the date, time, location and summary of each event that showcases diversity and/or provides the opportunity to learn or experience varied ideas, cultures, identities, and ideas. Some examples that have already taken place on campus this school year include “Self-determination at UHart, a dis/ability colloquium event;” “A vigil to remember victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting;” and “Affirming Inclusivity: a Not on My Campus celebration.” This evening, a rally for transgender rights is scheduled to take place in front of Harrison Libraries.
Such events are important and enhance the campus community experience. By making me aware of those you are planning, we all will be better able to support. promote, and attend the events.
Before the end of exams this fall, I plan to publish a listing of all events scheduled in the spring semester. Make sure your event is in the listing. Email me today at email@example.com.
