As the University implements strategic plans aimed at issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, conversations have begun within various communities of color concerning the lack of their presence within the construction, articulation, and, potentially, implementation of these plans. Students within these communities recognize that historically when efforts targeting these same issues are addressed, their needs are not prioritized. Lack of institutional memory, documentation, and recognition regarding the past mobilization of our communities and our historical presence on campus only further the severity of the issue and dis-empower our communities. Recently, students of color on campus initiated critical conversations that identify the intersection of the important concerns raised within our individual communities. In the spirit of education, empowerment, and community building, we will be hosting a cross-community forum, called the E. Young Empowerment Series. Through the E. Young Empowerment Series, we hope to center the unique experiences and voices of students of color on campus. While our efforts intend to address the various needs in our communities, we also acknowledge that we do not represent every voice within our communities.
