Building an Anti-Racist World Through the Arts

Following the launch of the five-year DEI Strategic Plan in 2016, the University began hosting the DEI Summit each year as an opportunity to provide both updated information and transparency in this process. The DEI Summit occurs during the fall semester of the academic year, and includes a campuswide community assembly with a keynote speaker, a community update event that highlights segments of the annual DEI report, and numerous school, college and unit events across campus. The virtual DEI Summit provides an opportunity for the University to highlight the progress we’ve made over the previous year, the changes we’re experiencing across campus, and the opportunities of continued engagement with our community. This year’s theme, Arts+Social Change: Building an Anti-Racist World through the Arts, provides a time and space for the campus community to come together to demonstrate a collective commitment to anti-racism that this moment in our history compels. During the fall term Democracy & Debate theme semester, the DEI Summit will focus on the arts as a vehicle for social change and provides an opportunity for curricular integration and connection. Both the theme semester and the Summit confirm our civic engagement values and demonstrate the power of each voice – both at the ballot box and through creative expression.
