EISC submits Center proposal to President Roth

Dear Wesleyan Community,

Thank you all for your engagement, energy, and thoughtful input as we built on the work of the Equity Task Force and crafted a proposal for The Center!  Continuing in the spirit of transparency the Equity Task Force established, the link below provides you with a copy of the proposal, delivered to President Roth this morning.  The work and the path toward greater inclusion in a manner that is equitable and lives up to the spirit of Wesleyan continues, so stay engaged and connected!

With gratitude,

The Equity & Inclusion Steering Committee

E&I Resource Center Proposal

Resource Center Update

Dear Wesleyan Community, 

We’re excited to update you all on the progress that the Equity and Inclusion Steering Committee has made with respect to the forthcoming resource center. Since our last update we have: 

-Completed outlines day-by-day for each affinity group the center will support

-Established job descriptions for three different staff positions

-Created plans for the future of the resource center

We hope to finish the proposal by the end of February, in time for the Board of Trustees meeting the first weekend of March. We look forward to continued conversation with the campus community about the resource center’s direction.

Thanks!

Best,

EISC
