As part of my office’s commitment to transparency and openness, I would like to invite you to two presentations.

First, my Student Union counterpart, Amber Abernathy, and I are holding open sessions about our campus’ progress in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The original agreements and other diversity-related statements can be found on the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Brandeis website.

We will have two open sessions (with the same presentation) on:

Second, Allyson Livingstone — who has joined my office as the new director of diversity, equity, & inclusion training, education and development — will hold two presentations for faculty and staff (though all members of the community are welcome) with the latest information on our current immigration issues, and ways that staff and faculty can best support students and one another. The training will cover recent developments related to DACA, Temporary Protected Status and campus protocols.

These open sessions (with the same presentation) will take place on:

I look forward to seeing you at these events.
