Advancing Diversity & Inclusive Excellence

Welcome to CME's digital home!

We invite you to use the resources on this site to learn more about our work, and how we can help your understanding and action for the University's commitment to Inclusive Excellence.

Reflections and resources re: Ferguson

Since the start of the new academic year, CME has been addressing questions and concerns from faculty, staff, and students regarding opportunities for engagement and support for DU community members who are concerned with the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri, and similar events nationally. Understanding that events beyond our campus boundaries can and do have an impact on our day-to-day interactions at DU, CME has prepared a resource document (PDF) to share with our faculty, staff, and student affinity groups. We recognize that all members in our community might also benefit from a friendly reminder of some resources available on campus, and so wish to share this document more widely. We would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to read it and share with others in your networks.
