Town Hall to Explore Racial Injustice and Inequity


The Truman Virtual Town Hall regarding racial injustice and inequity President Thomas mentioned in her email to students, faculty and staff, will take place at 6 p.m. June 24.

The purpose of the town hall is to take stock of where we are currently as a University and gain a shared understanding of what we must address to accomplish institutional change. This understanding will permit us to determine the meaningful, sustained, accountable ways Truman can be the change we wish to see.

Panel members scheduled to participate include: Brad Turnbull, interim director of the Center for Diversity & Inclusion; Jason McDonald, assistant professor of history; Theo Dean, head coach for women’s basketball; two students selected by Student Government; and Bertha Thomas, Truman’s newly hired diversity and inclusion consultant.

The town hall will be limited to 750 participants. As it is designed to examine the current state of affairs at the University, registration is only available for current students — including spring graduates — as well as faculty and staff. Participants should be aware the town hall will be recorded.

Registration can be completed here. Upon registration participants will be emailed a link needed to join the town hall.
