Cultural Competency Lecture Series–Call for 2020-2021 proposals

The Cultural Competency Lecture Series provides faculty, staff, students, and community members the opportunity to learn about topics that will increase their ability to live and work well with people they perceive to be different in some significant way.

For 2020-2021, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion is soliciting proposals from faculty and staff that address issues relevant to our campus and community.  Although the title of the series refers to “lectures,” we prefer interactive presentations that engage participants.  Recent topics have included accessibility as inclusion; social class, silence, and solutions; non-binary gender and bathrooms; environmental justice; cultural appropriation; and controversial art. 

If you would like to facilitate or co-facilitate a lecture during the 2020-2021 academic year, please send a title, brief abstract, and a description of your related work on the topic to the Office of Diversity & Inclusion by Friday, March 13 by emailing
