Checking the Box “Diversity-Related Event or Gathering”

Using the LU Room Reservation System?
Have you noticed that new checkbox under “Details”?
The one that says “Diversity-Related Event or Gathering”?

To create a more inclusive Lawrence, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Diversity and Intercultural Center encourage the campus community to be aware of upcoming events, organizations, services, workshops, and ongoing initiatives in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and equity.

When you are making a room reservation in the LU system, selecting the “Diversity-Related Event or Gathering” box allows you to indicate that your program, meeting, class, or event could be characterized in this way. This is an excellent way to attract more people to your event!

Whether it is in the Warch Campus Center, the Diversity and Intercultural Center, or anywhere on campus, ask yourself if the event you’re planning enhances diversity and inclusion. If the answer is yes, then click the box. It’s as simple as that!

By clicking the box, you’re also communicating the details of your event via the SRL webpage under Campus Diversity Updates & News.
