The Social Equity Book Club Series

The Office of Equity and Inclusion (formerly known as the Office Human Relations) is kicking off 2020 with our Social Equity Book Club! 

This is not your ordinary book club. Each month will provide a new opportunity to challenge your “social-norms” by exploring people, situations and circumstances that might be different from your own

Book scholarships are available as needed.
