Office of Diversity and Inclusion to Host Town Hall Tonight

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is hosting a town hall tonight at 6 p.m. in Dale Hall alongside Interim President Joseph Harroz.

Starting at 6 p.m., students will have the opportunity to voice any concerns or opinions they feel need to be heard by the university.

The event was set before OU’s most recent blackface incident this weekend.

The event is open to all students, but RSVP is encouraged.

Following the recent blackface incident on campus, Price College hosted a diversity inclusion meeting for students’ voices to be heard.

The meeting included Interim Dean of Price College, along with other staff members and various students at the university. Students were able to express their feelings about the racist events that have occurred during their time at OU.

Price College’s Diversity Director said it is important for students’ voices to be heard and know that someone cares about them.

“We want to listen to the students,” says Koretta McArthur, Coordinator of Diversity Events. “We are so student focused that this is so important to you and to us, so we need to know what we need to do going forward.”

McArthur’s office is open to all students on campus, and the Black Emergency Response Team of OU will be hosting a press conference at Dale Hall tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m.
