Diversity Lunch with Provost Vizzini

All faculty and instructors are invited to discuss the state of diversity in the WSU curriculum with Provost Vizzini at a lunch on Friday, February 17 from 11:30 to 1:00. The Provost would like to hear your ideas on such questions as: of the diversity-related gaps that exist in our current course offerings,  which ones seem most critical to fill? What opportunities to augment diversity in our curriculum can we pursue in the future? The lunch will be held in RSC 233 (Santa Fe Trail Room). Please RSVP to janis.hudson@wichita.edu by February 14. And please share this invitation with other faculty whom you feel would be interested in attending.
