Colleagues:

Attached is the January issue of Diversity Outlook.

We are continuing to embark on a variety of initiatives that will hopefully continue to enhance and strengthen the KU community. I would like to extend an invitation to any department or school to consider having our Interactive Theatre Troupe perform as part of a professional development opportunity you may have this spring semester. We are also making arrangements for the inaugural Spring Symposium on the Scholarship of Diversity scheduled for March 14th and 15th. I would like to encourage everyone who has conducted (or in progress) research/scholarship related to diversity, equity, or inclusion to consider offering a poster session – we are seeking multiple academic disciplines. Graduate students are most welcome to participate and could provide a good professional opportunity for them.

I hope that you have a great start to the spring semester and as always, thank you for your continued support.

Fred
