Foundations in Diversity and Inclusion for Policy Makers

This seminar is strongly recommended for all students and is designed to help students better understand structural racism and systems of power and oppression. This four-day seminar will examine racism from a historical perspective and provide important context for students to further engage in issues of inequality, which is essential to policymaking in the 21st century.  Seminar topics and dates will be finalized soon.  Topics and speakers from last year can be found below.
