The AULA Diversity Committee dedicated to identify, gather, discuss and recommend campus-wide initiatives that include the perspective of historically marginalized groups in our core practices such as: pedagogies, ways of knowing, curriculum development, academic partnerships, public programming, position on current topics, community relations, admissions, and hiring. To counter the social ills that interfere with justice and distort our reality, we hope to work together locally and globally, toward an end to racism, classism, transphobia, ageism, heterosexism, religious intolerance, sexism, ableism, and xenophobia.
The committee is a volunteer-based collective of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and administrators who meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The meetings begin with a 45 minute Town Hall which is open to the AULA community to ask about/share diversity and inclusion concerns and recommendations. The final 45 minutes are devoted to the status of ongoing committee work.
- We have reached a number of 11 active members as of December 2017.
- Still welcoming new members willing to commit to attending three quarterly meetings from January to June 2018. If interested please contact any member or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Diversity Committee was proud to partner with Caramac Productions to bring Todd Logan’s “Defamation: The Play” to the campus. The play was designed as an interactive experience in which a courtroom drama unfolds–and makes the audience the jury. The photo above was taken at the event. Read more about the event here.
