The Office of Diversity & Inclusion would like to extend an invitation for faculty and staff to attend the DEI & Racial Equity Workshop on Monday, November 29, at 3:30 p.m. It is vital to our campus climate that we continue to promote reflection, dialogue and learning for all members of the institution.  As outlined in our racial equity strategic plan, one of our priorities as a college is to increase institutional capacity and to encourage individuals to utilize their enhanced awareness and knowledge in their roles and in their work:

Witness to Injustice/KAIROS Blanket Exercise,  Monday, November 29, 2021,  3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. in collaboration with the ALANA Student Center

Presenters:  Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) and Facilitators from the Haudenosaunee Confederacy

A 2.5 hour interactive program that utilizes meaningful quotes and visual representations of history to foster truth, understanding, and respect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.  The Witness to Injustice Blanket Exercise will deepen one’s understanding of the European colonization of Turtle Island, the denial of Indigenous peoples’ nationhood, and the acquisition of land (many times illegal) throughout U.S. history past and present.

We look forward to seeing you,
