Earth U: Sustainability & Diversity Mentorship Dinner
Join us for the 4th Annual Earth U: Sustainability & Diversity Mentorship Dinner on Wednesday, March 8 from 6-8 p.m. in the Union Ballroom. This FREE DINNER event focuses on bringing many voices to sustainability issues and developing a network of diverse people, ideas, and possibilities. Panelists from the community will join students and answer questions about their own paths, giving students the chance to interact with professionals from different backgrounds and disciplines.
Dr. Diana Leong, faculty at the University of Utah, will provide the keynote address. Dr. Leong is an assistant professor of English and Environmental Humanities at the University of Utah. Her scholarly and pedagogical interests are situated at the intersections of African American literature and culture and the environmental humanities, with a focus on environmental justice as it emerged out of black political struggles for race, class, and gender equality across the United States over the last century.
Seating is limited and will be allotted to the first participants to sign up. This event is open to all students from the University of Utah. We strive to make the event inclusive and safe.
Earth U is planned by a committee with student, faculty, and staff representatives from the American Indian Resource Center, Education, Culture & Society, Environmental & Sustainability Studies, LGBT Resource Center, �and the Sustainability Office.
