Under the working title “Acknowledgment and Reconciliation," the Division of Diversity and Inclusion is seeking volunteers to serve on a committee, Chaired by Dr. Robin Muhammad, Chair of Faculty Senate and African American Studies Professor to research the University’s relationship to issues such as slavery, racial oppression, and Native land dispossession, as manifested in building names and other visible markers.
