ODI sponsors faculty and staff listening sessions to provide a space for our faculty and staff to share concerns related to structural, interpersonal and individual forms of inequity that may be happening on campus. These listening sessions are one way for ODI to assess climate, so that action steps can be taken to increase our faculty and staff’s sense of belonging in our AU community.
