Meeting 10: Summary

    Tim Holst and Elias Mokole, co-chairs of the Academic Affairs Unit Change Team, presented an AA UCT progress report. The AA UCT received a grant to host an “Inside the Artists’ Studio” diversity dialogue with Ovation Concert soprano Geraldine McMillian and pianist David Mayfield (March 30). The AA UCT is also developing a staff workshop on understanding white privilege, discussing new Welcome Week workshops and UMD Seminar topics, and planning a “TED-Talk” type presentation on African and African American Studies, Women Studies, American Indian Studies programs.
    Chris Davila, CCT and VC Student Life UCT member, presented the SL UCT progress. A half-day retreat in March resulted in three action steps: (1) hosting several sharing/talking circles related to Tim Wise’s presentation, (2) researching the inclusive holiday policy, soliciting feedback, and developing recommendations, and (3) developing a Student Life inclusive ally program.

    Accepting an invitation by the CCT to discuss student conduct policies, Lisa Erwin, VCSL, and Cat Riley, Director of the Office of Student Conduct, discussed some proposed changes to the Student Spectator Code of Conduct for athletic event ticket holders. They are partnering with the VC Advancement UCT to revise and update this document as well as on other ideas that the Advancement UCT will be proposing to the Athletics department. In addition, Student Association members have been discussing how to contribute to improving the campus by working with their peers and broadening student involvement. CCT members had an opportunity to ask questions, offer suggestions, and thank our guests.

    Mitchell Hammer, founding scholar and expert on intercultural competency, will attend a special CCT meeting on April 23. Bilin and Susana are developing a proposal on continuing and strengthening campus climate efforts; this will be presented to the Leadership Team.
    CCT members accepted the draft template for end-of-year UCT reports; these are due May 12.
