|Dear Campus Community,
The Office of Inclusive Excellence is launching a new YouTube Channel entitled Spotlight Series. The purpose of this series is to explore and raise awareness about issues that affect our campus and wider society, including anti-Semitism, gender equity, free speech, and immigration among others.
The topic of the first installment is Islamophobia or fear of Islam and Muslim people. I explore this topic with UCI student Aya Hallak, an international studies major and participant in the Olive Tree Initiative.
You are also invited to a special guest lecture by Reza Aslan, Author of the New York Times Bestseller, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.
Date: Tuesday, May 2
Tickets are free for UCI students, staff, and faculty with valid UCI identification. RSVP soon; reservations close on Monday, May 1 at 12:00 p.m.
I look forward to seeing you at this important event.
Expect Equity, Support Diversity and Practice Inclusion,
Douglas M. Haynes, Vice Provost for Academic Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
