Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Wednesday morning.
Throughout campus, we continue to see a stronger commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion at Louisiana Tech. I’m encouraged to see a greater focus on including opportunities for learning lessons related to these important topics inside and outside of class.
This fall, we announced Louisiana Tech’s inclusion in the new class of universities joining a three-year institutional change effort to develop inclusive faculty recruitment, hiring, and retention practices through the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). The effort is known as Aspire: The National Alliance for Inclusive & Diverse STEM Faculty.
Next week, we will host two events that focus on diversity and creating opportunities for all in the areas of business and health.
First, the New Frontiers Series will offer its latest seminar on COVID-19, one focused on health care disparities, vaccine education, and what individuals can do to aid in community response and recovery. Featuring Dr. Karriem S. Watson from the University of Illinois, Chicago School of Public Health Community Health Sciences, and Rudy Macklin from the Louisiana Department of Health, the event will be held online at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1. It’s free, and you can register online.
Tuesday, Feb. 2, the College of Business will host Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. This virtual event includes six sessions featuring an array of speakers who are diversity, equity, and inclusion thought-leaders from top global corporations. This forum will provide a platform for awareness and skill-building around issues of diversity and inclusion in the business world. Faculty, staff, students, and community members can participate free in one or more of these online sessions throughout the day. Find the full schedule and register at tinyurl.com/LATechDI2021.
I hope you’ll plan to join me at one or both of these events next week.
