Georgetown College hosted the second annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit, organized by the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU) on Tuesday, November 14. Students, faculty, staff, and community members from across the state assembled to discuss diversity and inclusion issues within the college environment.
“Georgetown College is committed to being an inclusive college where everyone feels welcome,” says Georgetown College President Rosemary Allen. “Listening to the perspectives of others is so important to understand the challenges we need to address moving forward. The Diversity and Inclusion Summit is a chance for us to expand our knowledge and learn from each other.”
Sessions were held throughout the day on topics like hiring a diverse workforce, reaching underserved students, and diversity communication. In addition, four college presidents formed a special panel to discuss ideas for building and fostering a diverse and inclusive campus culture.
Dr. OJ Oleka, President of AIKCU, moderated the special panel. Presidents featured on the panel included Dr. Rosemary Allen of Georgetown College, Brien Lewis from Transylvania University, Tori Murden McClure from Spalding University, and Dr. Burton Webb from the University of Pikeville.
