Deeply Rooter Conversations Series

Through critical reflection, personal, and community actions, the Deeply Rooted Conversations series creates a space for faculty, staff, students and community members to learn about topics related to social injustice, privilege, diversity and inclusion to work towards social transformation within everyone's work on and off campus. The series is for learners and educators at all levels that are committed to creating inclusive and equitable spaces on campus and beyond.

Sessions are offered once per month in 90-120 minute sessions. Certain sessions will build on previous topics. Recordings will be made available for those not able to attend previous sessions.
