The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion ran the first issue of its new monthly newsletter on January 13, 2021. The first issue featured the upcoming CFAES National Day of Racial Healing, our revised mission, vision, and values, the DEI Action Council, introductions to the office's staff, and upcoming professional development opportunities. Future issues of the newsletter will be sent out on the second Wednesday of each month and will feature upcoming events, information on professional development opportunities, and resources to help support the CFAES community in their efforts to cultivate a welcoming and equitable environment for people from all walks of life.
