Diversity and Inclusion Champion Awards Reception

May 30, 2019 ● 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. ●  Warch Campus Center, Somerset Room

The Diversity & Inclusion Champion Award was created to honor a select group of extraordinary individuals who serve as role models for our efforts to create a more inclusive Lawrence. These individuals use their personal power, talents, position and influence to help the University achieve inclusive excellence in the execution of its mission. Annually four awards will be given: one to a student, one to a member of faculty, one to a staff member and one to a community partner. For more information go to the D&I Champion Awards page.


Faculty of Color Mentoring Circles

Coming Soon

We will continue these peer facilitated groups that meet regularly to promote the success of individual faculty. The purpose of the groups is to solve professional problems while also supporting personal development. The program is based on a model developed in circles involving women scientists in higher education, as described in the book Every Other Thursday by Ellen Daniel. This group model is grounded in radical psychiatric theory which emphasizes self-empowerment. Watch for details to come.

  • (Un)Documents
    5:00pm Warch Campus Center 226 - Mead Witter Room
    With a single phrase, you can give up your country. With a single signature, you can tear a family apart. With a single word, you can learn to transform. In their first full-length solo show, (Un)Documents, award-winning actor and poet Jesus I. Valles journeys across both sides of a river with two names, moving between languages to find their place as a child, a lover, a teacher, and a sibling in a nation that demands sacrifice at the altar of citizenship. In doing so, they create a new kind of documentation written with anger, fierce love, and the knowledge that what makes us human can never be captured on a government questionnaire. Directed by Rudy Ramirez, the show received its initial staging at The VORTEX in 2018 as part of FuturX: A New Festival of Latinx Performance. (Un)Documents won three 2018 B. Iden Payne awards for Outstanding Original Script, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, and Outstanding Direction of a Drama, and was nominated for Outstanding Production of a Drama. (Un)Documents was also presented as part of the 2019 OutsiderFest artist's showcase and excerpts from it were featured at the Latinx Theatre Common's Sin Fronteras Festival. This is a diversity-related event.
