Celebrate the first 30 days of a yearlong, campus-wide “Dignity and Respect Campaign” on Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 3:30-4:45 in Brendle Recital Hall.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature remarks from:
Maya Angelou, Reynolds Professor of American Studies, renowned poet and Civil Rights activist;
Ed Wilson, Provost Emeritus, retired professor of English and literary scholar;
and Johnnetta Cole, director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art, former president of Spelman College and Bennett College for Women, and humanitarian.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion launched the campaign on Oct. 7 to unite the campus under the core belief that everyone deserves dignity and respect. Originally established by the Center for Inclusion at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the national movement promotes inclusion through behavioral and organizational change.
