SIU Today - September 26, 2016


In my May 3, 2016, message to campus, I outlined a number of initiatives to support diversity and inclusion at SIU Carbondale. A list of the initiatives and an update on the status of each is available online. This document will be periodically updated throughout the academic year. Thank you for all you do to contribute to and support this important work.
