Toward Inclusivity VIdeo

The purpose of this project is to encourage the University of Minnesota community – students, faculty & staff – to engage in authentic and sometimes difficult discussions about diversity on our campus. How do we define diversity? Why are we investing in diversifying our graduate student and postdoctoral populations? What does it mean to genuinely value difference? Discussion questions and resources follow each section of this video.
