Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
The UNI Advising Network hosts monthly Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion discussion and enhancement sessions for any campus faculty or staff member on a variety of topics during the academic year. The focus of these sessions is to both discuss applications, practices and policies as well as to look more closely at UNI specific data and information.
Contact Kyle Haiman or Meredith Pecinovsky for more information on these sessions.
For the Spring 2023 semester, the UNI Advising Network will not be hosting diversity, equity, and inclusion sessions for advisors to instead participate in the campus-wide Bites of Knowledge monthly programming being offered through the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Social Justice.
The UNI Advising Network is planning to continue its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion sessions again in the Fall 2023 semester.
Fall 2022 Session Dates (all sessions 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.)
