Town Hall on Racial Injustice: Listen, Learn, and Act

Friday | June 26, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is holding a town hall discussion about racial injustices and the opportunities and responsibilities we have as a community moving forward.

The purpose of this townhall, hosted by SEAS Dean Kemper Lewis, is to have an open discussion about the challenges facing SEAS as we address issues of racial inequality. Members of the SEAS Community can submit questions, concerns, suggestions, and ideas ahead of the Town Hall event using the online submission form. The submissions will be used by the panel moderators to guide the panel discussions.

The submissions will also be used to shape our short and long term priorities and action plans. The event will be live streamed.

Intended Audience: School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Faculty, Staff and Students

Note: only SEAS Community members can submit questions. A username/password is required.
