Attached is the November 2011 issue of Diversity Outlook.

We are now seeking nominations for the distinguished Langston Hughes Visiting Professorship (LHVP) for the spring 2013 semester. All academic units are eligible to participate in this university-wide program that has been a beneficial arrangement in both bringing prominent or emerging scholars to KU and also serving as a wonderful opportunity to recruit (7 of the past 12 LHVP are now on the faculty at KU).

Diversity Talks is a new initiative that will be offered once in the fall and spring semesters. All administrators, faculty, and staff are invited to attend the inaugural event on Thursday, November 17th – 3:30-5:00 in the Kansas Room (6th floor) of the Union. Food and refreshments will be served. A more detailed description of Diversity Talks can be found in the newsletter.

You have my very best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving break with family and friends.

Thank you for your continued support.
