Diversity Council Encourages Open Discussion

The UALR Diversity Council will hold the first in a series of luncheon forums aimed at engaging the campus community in discussions about diversity from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Donaghey Student Center Room G.

"We'd like to be known for championing diversity with our actions."The Brown Bag Lunch and Learn forum is open to students, faculty, and staff. Drinks will be provided.

“Our purpose in hosting the events is to engage the campus community in discussions about diversity and to allow some time for faculty and staff to share any concerns they may have about diversity at the university,” said Dr. John Miller Jr., co-chair of the Diversity Council and assistant professor in the UALR School of Social Work.

In 2011, Chancellor Joel E. Anderson established the council to lead the campus in planning related to diversity and in launching strategic diversity initiatives.

“Goal four of our revised strategic plan charges us to be committed to diversity in all areas of the university. We have done well in our efforts to be an inclusive and welcoming community, but much more can be done. The Diversity Council will lead the campus in planning and launching initiatives to ensure UALR is a diverse community, characterized by an absence of institutional discrimination,” said Anderson.
