A series of panel discussions, lectures and forums sponsored by the Office of the Provost

In 2016, we started the Campus Conversation series with the theme of What’s Going on and Why?  The Campus Conversation is an opportunity to bring our whole community together to learn about, explore, and discuss issues that directly affect the lives of those in our community, and to provide a safe space where conversation can occur and diverse viewpoints can be shared and considered.  Over the past two years, we have heard speakers talk about race and policing, immigration and migration, the presidential election, civil liberties, the #MeToo Movement, climate change, tax reform, and more.

I would like to thank the UIC Diversity Advisory Committee for their leadership and guidance in assisting with the selection of topics and speakers for this year’s Campus Conversation.

I hope you will join me and your fellow students, faculty and staff for these Campus Conversations.
