Join the Anti-Racism Webinars
Please join the upcoming Grainger College of Engineering Anti-racism Webinars
From Dean Rashid Bashir:
As the college’s Anti-Racism Task Force continues to develop actions that will improve our policies, practices, and culture, I want to again encourage you individually to educate yourself on ways that you can support our faculty, staff, and students of color. Take dedicated time to learn more, reflect, and address the issues that you see day to day.
One way to do that is to attend the Anti-Racism seminars that we are hosting via Zoom. The 3-part series begins this week and will include experts from across campus as well as from other institutions around the country.
