Minutes from the meeting, including a list of attendees comprised of the NACAB members, as well as DU faculty and staff, will be available online soon.

ODEI is soliciting proposals up to $5,000 from University of Denver students, staff, and faculty representing departments, offices, units, and campus organizations to support programming and/or learning opportunities to explore antiracism.
