All students, faculty, and staff are invited to join Chancellor Michelle Marks, Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Antonio Farias, and Equity Task Force co-chairs Antwan Jefferson and John Ronquillo for this virtual discussion. The Equity Task Force was formed following Chancellor Marks' Equity Listening Sessions last fall to delve into the core of CU Denver’s equity challenges, including structural barriers to hiring and promoting underrepresented faculty and staff. Between the task force and its supporting action teams, more than 130 faculty, staff, and students explored a host of issues—including how to close the achievement gap, what it means to be a Hispanic Serving Institution, how to create a culture of belonging, whether our policies are contributing to equity, and how we might diversify the curriculum. The audience will hear recommendations from the Equity Task Force and a discussion of next steps.
