Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts IDEAS Forum. In this series, we will strive to highlight how Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity are Advancing through Scholarship in the College. One of the most exciting things about working in the College of Liberal Arts is the innovative scholarship that is happening all around us—in the Humanities, in the Fine and Performing Arts, in Math and Sciences, and in the Social Sciences, and at the intersections of all of these disciplines. Our strength is in the breadth of our scholarship and the diversity of our scholars, and our capacity to be on the cutting-edge of research and creative achievement that “makes a difference.” We benefit from having many “ways in” for people who wish to better understand and change our world. This forum will showcase and celebrate the scholars who are creating inclusive spaces, paving roads to equity, and solving social problems every day. We come together in a forum to make this work more visible and so that we might connect the dots that are not always apparent to us when we work in isolation from one another. We hope you will join us!
