All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to participate in “#manyvoices: A Campus Conversation on Diversity” this spring, through speaker series, college events, and campus-wide conversations.  The goal of the conversations is to ask ourselves how we can develop and sustain an inclusive Illinois; build bridges across differences on our campus; and think creatively about school spirit.  The speaker series will include national experts and scholars sharing their advice and expertise around the challenges and opportunities involving building inclusive communities.  Speakers include the following:
