Black Lives Matter: Diversity at Lewis & Clark College

Date: 7:00pm PST February 1, 2016

Join us for the third in our panel series 

Black Lives Matter: Diversity at Lewis & Clark College  

Last fall,  the Black Lives Matter movement erupted at scores of colleges and universities across the country with students demanding changes at their institutions.  After a series of racist messages and a physical assault on our campus, students mobilized to demand a safer and more welcoming College.  In an effort to respond to students, faculty developed a proposal to diversify faculty and the curriculum at L&C.  This proposal was presented to the faculty at a meeting in December.  Now, faculty will present that proposal to the wider community to seek feedback and suggestions.
