Fall 2020 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit
Equity in Higher Education during the Time of COVID-19
Thursday, November 5 | 1:00–3:00 p.m.
Join us for the Fall 2020 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Summit. The event will bring together all WSU faculty, staff, and students to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed inequities across the nation and how these inequities are impacting WSU students. Additionally, it will explore how the pandemic can be seen as a catalyst for long-lasting change in equity, justice, and community building—and how faculty and staff are all called to contribute to this crucial work.

President Kirk Schulz and Jaime Nolan, associate vice president of student affairs, will provide opening remarks on the national landscape; the pandemic’s impact on WSU students, faculty, and staff; and lessons we have learned and are learning.
WSU students will share stories about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted them personally. Presenters from each WSU campus will address:
  • How are we being called to do the work of equity and justice differently in light of the pandemic? Each presenter will provide an example from their campus.
  • The potential to acknowledge and address issues of equity, justice, and community-building in this sociopolitical moment.
Elizabeth Chilton, provost and executive vice president, and Mary Jo Gonzales, vice president of student affairs, will provide closing remarks. The summit will conclude with a Q&A.
