The Diversity Council’s Listen & Learn Series

The Diversity Council’s Listen & Learn series serves as an opportunity to address our campus community on topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Each program in the series should include a presentation (30-40 minutes is recommended) and have time for interaction and questions from the participants.  The Diversity Council will advertise Listen & Learn programs to the campus community, and faculty are encouraged to share with students in their class and to offer credit for attending, when appropriate.

If you have a topic that you are ready to share with UA Little Rock, please fill out this form, and we will get in touch!

“Modern Warrior of World War I: American Indians in the Great War” | Erin Fehr

Wednesday, March 10th at 12 pm | Details are forthcoming

The Sequoyah National Research Center has created a database to identify all 12,000 American Indians that served in World War I. The project will be online as part of the US World War I Centennial Commission’s website. American Indians and Alaska Natives have served at higher rates than any other ethnic group in the United States military. Their service in World War I included using their language to create a code that was never broken by the Germans. The audience will learn of the incredible sacrifice and bravery of these men, when most of them were not even citizens of the United States.
