Emory University’s Senate Diversity Committee, in conjunction with the Office of Community and Diversity, is proud to announce the development of diversity.emory.edu, a top-level pilot web portal for diversity-related content at Emory.
The site is structured as a window into a constantly evolving database of entries about Emory diversity events, resources, news, and stories. It also hosts a Diversity Blog Series to allow the discussion of diversity-related concerns or issues. As a clearinghouse for all the considerable effort that takes place on Emory’s campus with regard to diversity, the site will:
- Help more people easily discover all the amazing work that is being done with regard to diversity throughout the University as a whole;
- Raise awareness and increase accessibility of the resources particular programs or organizations provide;
- Facilitate collaborative efforts among diversity programs and organizations.
We are currently in an information-gathering phase regarding diversity organizations and need your help. Please fill out our web form to be included in this diversity portal. Please click here to fill out the form.
The Provost’s Office has a Race & Science Initiative that is starting to bring candidates for interviews. Attached is the flyer for Dr. Rajagopalan, who has a PhD in biology from MIT and is currently a sociology postdoc at the University of Wisconsin. Her seminar title is: DNA AND DIFFERENCE: RACE, ANCESTRY, AND GENETICS IN CONTEMPORARY BIOMEDICINE. She is at the interface between genomics, public policy and sociology and has a very interesting and impressive CV. Some, or all, of you might find her seminar to be of interest. Clickherefor flyer.
