In response to the Nov. 8 hate attack against Gonzaga's Black Student Union (BSU) members during a Zoom meeting, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) is hosting a Town Hall on Zoom to provide a space for discussion.
The Town Hall will take place Monday, Dec. 7, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. PST.
Members of the community with concerns, thoughts and questions for administrators are encouraged to attend.
In an email to the GU community, Raymond Reyes, associate provost and chief diversity officer, and Kent Porterfield, vice provost of student affairs, said the Town Hall will largely focus on questions from students, GU's response to the hate attack and other race-related incidents and will also touch on work toward greater diversity, inclusion and equity.
The Town Hall panel will include:
GU President Thayne McCulloh
Deena González, provost and senior vice president
Raymond Reyes, associate provost and chief diversity officer within the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Kent Porterfield, vice provost of student affairs
Becky Wilkey, director of Campus Security & Public Safety
Phillip Tyler, crime prevention and education officer within Campus Security & Public Safety
Those interested in attending must register via the registration link by Sunday at noon. The link can be found in Morning Mail and in the email sent out to the GU community by Reyes and Porterfield.
Security measures are being taken in the registration process and in the delivery of the webinar to ensure the safety of community members.
