A number of individuals who are interested in developing a multicultural community of inclusion have worked with the MultiCultural Center at Ohio State to bring a Multicultural Advocacy Series to the College of Veterinary Medicine this spring. Please see information below and attached and use the link below to RSVP if you wish to attend any or all of the sessions so that we can provide information to the presenters. You’ll note that all Faculty, staff, and students are invited. Part of our goal through conversations with broad representation is to build connections amongst our college.
For those interested, there will also be an informational meeting at 12pm on March 21 in Goss Auditorium about efforts to create a community of inclusion, what you can expect to see in the future, and how you can participate (this will also be sent via another email, but included here to keep all the information in one place). Or, feel free to reach out directly if you have questions or comments. Best regards, Mary Jo
