2020 & Beyond: Building & Thinking Forward

Associate Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer Dania Matos invites faculty and staff members, alumni, parents and friends of UC Merced to join her for 2020 & Beyond: Building & Thinking Forward, a series of structured, listening sessions. Together, campus community members will explore three key themes that will guide the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as it develops goals for its first year. The goals will form the foundation of a campuswide strategic plan.

Sessions are scheduled in September, October, November, December and January and a Twitter chat will be held in October or November to accommodate those unable to attend the in-person events.
