KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Faculty members at UT are standing up for the Office for Diversity and Inclusion.
Around 30 faculty members signed an open letter to Tennessee legislators in support of students, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and Vice Chancellor Rickey Hall.
The group is looking to strengthen the commitment to diversity and inclusion of “underrepresented groups at UT in a manner that both acknowledges” a diverse society.
They are urging legislators to not support any budget cuts or limitations on the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at University of Tennessee.
The members have also come up with six actions to reaffirm UT’s commitment to diversity.
