DU Solidarity Event

The Center for Multicultural Excellence hosted a solidarity event on Friday, July 8th to honor the lives recently lost to gun violence. Members of the DU community gathered to grieve and reflect on how our community should respond to the violence.

Before leaving, many in attendance filled out a commitment to action sheet, an opportunity to share how they plan to make a difference in the future. The commitment to action sheet can be found here. Completed sheets are currently on display in the Driscoll Underground. If you would like yours to be featured, please drop off completed sheets at the IESSLD office in Driscoll Student Center North, Room 018.

Please visit the DU Newsroom for the University's coverage of the event.

Chancellor announces administrative changes

Last academic year, Chancellor Chopp began making structural changes at DU that affect CME, and has followed through with a number of Inclusive Excellence-related changes connected to the ongoing Imagine DU initiatives. She summarized many of these changes in her 8 June 2015 "state of Inclusive Excellence" summary.

Most of CME joined with Student Life under the new Vice Chancellor for Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence, focused on student experience; while other staff re-organized into the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), under the new Sr Advisor to the Chancellor and Provost, focused on faculty and academic issues. The two areas presented a joint End of Year presentation on May 17, available soon in PDF here.

Current programs and services through CME, IRISE and Student Life will continue with minimal changes for the foreseeable future. Stay for tuned for updates!
