Beginning in 2019–20, the Office of Inclusive Excellence began hosting an annual diversity lecture to provoke thought, extend conversations, and inform current practices related to our universitywide diversity efforts. The series brings thought leaders to campus who can inspire and challenge us to engage the theological, cultural, and institutional aspects of this work. This annual event is part of a larger effort to establish community rhythms that focus on learning together and living into our diversity commitments as a university.
