Nebraska Community of Learners – Understanding Diversity through Education (#NCLUDE)

11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Office of Diversity and Inclusion, (402) 472-0148,
#NCLUDE is an opportunity for participants to contribute to ongoing resources related to inclusive excellence and to connect the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to the expanded community. Each session will present opportunities for individuals to be guest presenters, topic facilitators and provide workshops to promote dialogue that highlights the importance and the power of inclusion.
Although faith is in many cases an “invisible” aspect of diversity, there are a vast number of different religious, spiritual, and secular identity groups present on our campus. Because our faith systems influence our understanding of values, morals, and community, they inherently affect our approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion work. For our third session of the academic year, we will host a panel of community leaders including:

Rabbi Alex Felch, South Street Temple and Tifereth Israel
Reverend Karla J. Cooper, Associate Professor of Practice at Doane University, Nebraska Wesleyan University, Allen-St John AME Church
Mr. Ryan McMaster, Treasurer and Director of Information Technology at Lincoln Atheists
Dr. Ibrahim Mohammad Alkli, Imam at the Islamist Foundation of Lincoln

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Max Perry Meuller of the Department of Classics and Religious Studies and panelists will discuss their religious, spiritual, and humanist communities, how they have found these communities in Nebraska, and how their identities and beliefs influence their approaches to social justice and diversity, equity, and inclusion work.

#NCLUDE is a space to talk candidly about inclusive excellence being a part of our everyday interactions.
