Critical Conversations About Diversity and Justice

The first Critical Conversations About Diversity and Justice series began in September 2012 and ran through April 2013.   We're excited to offer this series for another year.  As with past years, all sessions will be livestreamed and video recorded, so past sessions can be accessed at any time.  Every conversation in the series takes place on a Friday, from 1:30 – 3 p.m. in the Givens Conference Room (120 Elmer Andersen Library, on the U’s West Bank Campus).

The Critical Conversations series is sponsored by the University of Minnesota's Office for Equity and Diversity and co-sponsored by the University Libraries. These conversations are open to all students, staff, faculty and community members, and do not require an RSVP.  Please use the hashtag #OEDCriticalConversation on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). 



After five successful years of critical conversations, due to staffing changes, OED has decided to take a year off of this program.  The last five years of conversations are archived here. You can also view the last four years of videos here. Updates about future programing will be added to this page as they become available.
