We understand that you might only be able to attend one day, however, we are hoping you are available for both dates.
DAY 1: On October 16, 2020, we will work together as faculty, staff, students, and community members to identify core issues and develop actions for moving our social justice agenda forward.
DAY 2: October 17, 2020, we will reconvene to share our work across groups. This day also features a commentary on racial social justice from Dr. Hillary Potter, Associate Dean for Inclusive Practice, College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Potter will be serving as both an external witness and our expert in social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) and anti-racism development.
The purpose of the Social Justice Summit Series is to establish a sustained, transparent dialogue between WVU leadership and minoritized faculty, staff, students, and community members that make up our WVU community.
