Center for Diversity and Inclusion addresses some frequently asked questions relating to the Roaring Return.
Will there be in-person student events?
Yes. University sanctioned events (includes student organizations, fraternities and sororities), will have a maximum capacity that is based on the room occupancy. Recreational gatherings will be limited to 10 people. All events must adhered to physical distancing guidelines of 6 feet apart and all attendees are required to wear a face covering. For all University sanctioned events, an attendance sheet must be completed and submitted to TJ Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org). The university will comply with regulations established by state and local government entities when determining if and how to hold on-campus events, thus policies are subject to change.
Will there be Implicit Bias, Safe Zone, and Safe Zone 2.0 trainings?
Yes. These trainings will be offered virtually, and a calendar of events will be available on the CDI website. In addition, new trainings that focus on Antiracism, Gender Bias, disAbility Bias, Cross-Cultural Bias, Religious/Spiritual Bias, and Socioeconomic Status (SES) Bias have been developed to meet the needs of the University campus community.
How do I report if I am being discriminated against because of COVID-19?
While we have not received any discrimination complaints regarding anti-Asian or anti-international, if you (or someone you know) receive negative treatment please report it immediately. You may report it to the Bias & Incident Reporting System, Dean of Students (email@example.com), or Center for Diversity & Inclusion (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Bias & Incident Reporting system allows for anonymous reporting. We are fully committed to ensuring all of our students feel welcomed, safe, and valued on our campus.
Can I come into the CDI for a meeting or to visit?
To protect our campus community, we are strongly recommending that all meetings with a CDI staff member will be held via Microsoft Teams. The CDI Atrium will be available for recreational gatherings with a maximum of 10 people and must adhere to physical distancing of 6 feet and wearing a face covering. University sanctioned events (includes student organizations, fraternities and sororities), will have a maximum capacity that is based on the room occupancy for the CDI atrium.
