ALS Virtual Seminar – Session 7
How Department Leaders Can Help to Address Racism and Inequities

Chancellor Jones wrote in a recent article: “I expect they will seek to add their voices to the protests that are driving racism out of the shadowy corners where it thrives and into the light where it simply cannot survive. We are ready to support them.”
In this session, our panel of campus leaders shares expertise and insights on what department heads and chairs can do to proactively engage with students, faculty, and staff in their respective units to enable them to address racism, inequity, injustice, and other difficult and important topics we face in our communities.
