Black Lives Matter: A Community Calling
Hosted by the President's Office
USU’s third annual Inclusive Excellence Symposium follows the tradition of promoting diversity, inclusion, and respect in the USU community by offering education, research, and training for understanding the experiences of underrepresented groups.
By focusing on “Black Lives Matter: A Community Calling” as the theme for 2020’s symposium, we’re building a foundation for our campus community to understand and counteract racism that affects marginalized communities.
This theme is not a declaration that only Black lives matter. It is, however, a recognition that issues of equality, economic security and physical safety for members of our Black community persist today and must be a part of our nation’s civil dialogue.
Please join us in this important conversation.
(NOTE: The theme of the Inclusive Excellence Symposium should not be interpreted as an endorsement of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.)
