Appointed by the Chancellor, the council advises the campus administration on creating and sustaining a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive campus climate to all groups. Goals for the group include attracting and retaining faculty and staff from under-represented populations; attracting, retaining, and graduating students from historically under-represented populations and international students; and ensuring that undergraduate curricular requirements include significant intercultural perspectives.
Say It Loud
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. To commemorate that landmark legislation, and to discuss civil rights progress and challenges in the decades since, the City of Knoxville and partners across East Tennessee will be hosting a series of events throughout 2014.
The next celebration event is a display of Knoxville Civil Rights footage, art exhibits and musical performances on September 5, 2014 at the East Tennessee History Center on Gay Street (across from Tennessee Theater).
