Provost’s Listening Tour

Provost Donna Arnett is conducting a campus-wide listening tour this semester and will be meeting with Arts and Sciences faculty and staff on November 10 and 14.

Because Dr. Arnett would like to limit the size of each session to facilitate meaningful dialogue, faculty from each unit within the College have been assigned specific meeting times, while all CAS staff are invited to a session on November 14 at 3 p.m.

All sessions will take place in the Hollings Program Room at the Thomas Cooper Library (and, per the Provost’s request, will be in-person only), on the following schedule:

November 10:

Equity and Inclusion Summit

November 9 – 11

All faculty and staff are invited to attend the 5th Annual Equity and Inclusion Summit:

Environmental Justice: Designing for Spatial Dignity

This year we are focused on spatial dignity, the practice of consciously creating environments of respect and inclusion. It values the needs and well-being of each person in all spaces and interactions, regardless of ability or social position. Summit participants will gain concrete tools to incorporate spatial dignity into their communities and develop new practices for the benefit of all.
