  3. Launch the online newsletter, Luminaries, to provide up-to-date, diversity-related campus news and to highlight some of the scholarly activities of our students, faculty, and alumni
  4. Host Being Candid: Discussions on Equity, a jointly sponsored speaker series in AY 20-21 to engage the campus community in dialogue on anti-racist and equitable practices, later to become a transdisciplinary course
  5. Launch the “Equity-minded and Inclusive Training” series for CGU staff in fall 2020
