Activities and Events for 2014-2015
Members of the UT Libraries Diversity Committee attended the 2015 College of Communication and Information’s Experience Diversity Banquet on February 20th. Held at the Bearden Banquet Hall, the purpose of the banquet is to provide an inspirational diversity experience for students, faculty and all others in attendance. The banquet also raises funds to support the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Program.

Their presentation titled “Standing your ground: Do online conversations matter or make a difference?” was given to an audience of about 20 students and included participation by Vice Chancellor for Diversity Rickey Hall. The UT Libraries Diversity Committee has participated in the Black Issues Conference for several years.
