A Message from the UISC DEI Committee Co-Chairs, Matsalyn Brown and James Jorris:

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” The UISC DEI Committee acknowledges the problematic history surrounding Gandhi and at the same time, supports the work towards unity. We look forward to celebrating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on campus and those efforts of all who work tirelessly answering that test by making our campus and community the best it can be. Although, there is still so much work to do, it is necessary to take a step back and reflect on all of our accomplishments and celebrate how far we have come. Thank you for joining the UI Staff Council DEI Committee and esteemed members of the University of Iowa and University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics DEI community for this special event to celebrate all that has been achieved and all that we can still do! 

Guests can log-in to the webinar at 4:00 pm and remarks will begin at 4:15 pm.
