    Communication Symposium Registration – Spring 2022   

    This semester's symposium will highlight two key components of the Strategic Plan: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Campus Sustainability

     Our panelists include:Elizabeth Garcia, Esq.Special Assistant to the President, Executive Director for the Office of Equity and DiversityKate Yerkes, Assistant Provost for Planning and Institutional EffectivenessMark Murphy, Director of Sustainability and Energy Management

     The new campus-wide plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) was approved by Cabinet and endorsed by the Board of Trustees in February.  This plan outlines action steps to address the University’s broader 2020 Strategic Plan DEI goal and objectives. Now, how can the University community (you) support, guide and implement the plan?  Liz Garcia and Kate Yerkes will review the core themes of the plan, some efforts already underway, the role of the Council for Diversity and Inclusion and others on campus, and how you can get involved.  They will also show you where to access plan-related resources,  progress updates, and how you can share information about your own DEI efforts. 

     Campus Sustainability is a team effort that includes all members of our campus and the local community.  Please join us to learn how our campus teaches our students and the world how to Care for our Common Home using many campus sustainable practices and activities.  Such as faculty research, green courses in all schools, Bike Share Scranton, community garden, student Society for Sustainability & Conservation, Students for a Better Future, LEED buildings, green purchasing, solar power, Princeton Review Green Schools, fresh food company, Jesuit Center Laudato Si’ program, and the Celebrate Earth Day Everyday awareness events.

     Please register by Wednesday, April 13!
