Storrs Campus
Student Union, Food Court

The Senate Diversity Committee will participate in an open dialogue with Faculty Staff and Students on issues related to Racism, Implicit Bias, Participation and Inclusion. Our plan is to have an open central space located in the Student Union. Our main purpose is to open a dialogue on these issues between the members of our Committee and the UConn Constituencies. We will bring information on the main issues and topics discussed by our committee to establish a basis for the open dialogue. Some of these issues include: 1)recruitment and retention of under-represented students, faculty and staff; 2)leadership positions for under-represented groups; 3) Active participation of under-represented groups in UConn initiatives; 4) Creation of an inclusive environment at UConn; 5) Training of employees in implicit bias; 5) Mentorship programs for diverse faculty and staff. We will also expect the UConn community to participate in this dialogue by providing ideas, personal experiences and proposed solutions for identified problems related to the central topic of this Metanoia.
