Statement of Purpose
The Days of Reflection is an initiative intended for education and conversation necessary for moving our campus, community, region, state, nation, and world toward greater racial equity and justice.
Following up on the success of, and feedback from our past events, we have scheduled longer sessions to allow for more conversation among participants. This also resulted from a recognition that conversations about race, ethnicity, and culture must be sustained and grown in a society which breeds racial illiteracy and cultural incompetence.
These much-needed events and the preparatory work for them were sponsored by the College’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as part of its belief that "a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice is essential in preparing engaged global citizens to lead lives enriched by critical thought, creativity, discovery, and the pursuit of academic excellence.”
