In conjunction with faculty and administrators from the LVAIC, DeSales is able to offer a lecture series that tackles important issues that affect historically underrepresented populations in the United States. This lecture series covers topics such as Diversity in the Media and Its Impact on Society and Multi-culture/Multi-race Families in America.
The primary function of the Diversity Lecture Series is to:
- Provide the University community with an opportunity to assemble, connect and dialogue with esteemed colleagues, community leaders and eminent scholars who elevate culture, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, disability, and dimensions of diversity so that, as a community, we continually explore the importance of social justice and inclusion as inherent to our mission as a Catholic and Salesian institution.
- Attract and offer lecturers who will share what has been most effective in helping institutions (education, business, social, civic, professional) to create an atmosphere and a culture that embraces people of diverse backgrounds, accepts and welcomes their presence and participation at DeSales University.
- Provide a forum for faculty, staff and students to engage in supplemental academic programming to deepen their knowledge and awareness of issues and opportunities for change in our global society.
- Offer the greater Lehigh Valley community an opportunity to enhance mutual understanding and to build mutually beneficial relationships for the improvement of individuals, our campus and society as a whole.
