Diversity and Inclusion Initiative Overview
The University of Nebraska Lincoln and the Lied Center for the Performing Arts have taken a key leadership role at the beginning of this long term, multi-campus, national conversation on the role of performing arts centers to enhance diversity and inclusion. UNL’s pledge from the highest levels of campus administration on racism is: “Not Here, Not Now, Not Ever.”
While acknowledging we have much to learn and significant change will take time, enthusiastic responses from national thought leader faculty and administration of the Major University Presenter campuses provide important momentum. We’ll begin the Symposium highlighting the work that’s already been accomplished on several campuses through a series of conversation clusters.
Each Conversation Cluster will begin with presentations that will be video documented and uploaded at a later date to the Symposium website. Presentations will be followed by responses and comments from other participants (45 are expected).
