Student Government Association and Committee on Diversity and Inclusion partner for racial equity work on campus
The Student Government Association and the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI) at Eastern Mennonite University are partnering for a racial equity initiative on campus. There is a broad mission - and specific plans for implementing a vision for a Racial Equity Leadership Institute (RELI). An introductory forum for RELI was announced in the Campus Center on Tues., Nov. 27. The forum was cosponsored by the Student Government Association.
The event will serve as "groundwatering" for upcoming cohort-based racial equity trainings, said CODI chair Melody Pannell, professor of applied social sciences. The pilot program for the racial equity leadership institute initiative will launch on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January 2019.
