The Chancellor’s Diversity Advisory Committee (CDAC) offers its upcoming meeting as a space where the conversations that were begun during the October 16th Town Hall Meeting can continue. At this forum campus constituents can share information about action steps being taken to develop inclusive excellence as well as to offer input to the Diversity Strategic Planning Steering Committee. Members of that group will be present at the forum.
