Ongoing Diversity Events & Programs


Trending Topics in DEI
Make plans to attend quarterly diversity forums to discuss trending topics and DEI initiative updates in the College of Criminal Justice. Forums are open to members of the campus community and serve as a platform to discuss, share, and learn about contemporary issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The goal of the Forward Forum is to communicate progress on DEI initiatives, share relevant research and best practices in diversity, and to empower constituents to contribute to the comprehensive diversity vision. Forum Dates will be published in September of each academic year.
