To Our Alumni and Friends,
In June, the university held a Day of Dialogue to start critical conversations related to race and justice—on campus and across America.
On Sept. 17, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the university are invited to continue these conversations surrounding equity, inclusion and racism through our next Day of Dialogue.
Through this daylong event, which will be livestreamed at case.edu/livestream/s1, the university’s Sustained Dialogue Program will provide an opportunity to receive updates, share concerns about these critical issues, and learn more about the mental health support and wellness resources available through the university.
I invite you to view the full schedule online, and register to attend these important sessions.
In an email to faculty, staff and students on Sept. 7, Robert Solomon, vice president for the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity, emphasized the university’s commitment to listen “intently to our community about their lived experiences and challenges and obstacles they faced in our institution.
“Back in June we held a Day of Dialogue to start the conversation,” he wrote. “In the months since we have worked to begin to respond to the many concerns we have heard expressed. Before we even begin, however, we want to be clear that these efforts mark only the beginning of our work. Like democracy, equity, justice and equality require our continuous and perpetual attention.”
Please consider joining us to spur these important discussions—and, most importantly, action—at Case Western Reserve.
