Forum for Inclusive Culture
The Forum for Inclusive Culture ("I-Forum") is dedicated to ensuring that our University is welcoming to all members of our diverse community and that all members feel understood. This requires building a community characterized by cooperation, listening, and care, rather than hierarchy, inflexibility, and isolation. Our goal is to work together to develop and implement a cultural framework that will ensure we are caring for the physical, psychological, social, and moral wellness of all members of our microcommunities and the Drexel community at large, and that we are modeling norms that are compatible with the evolving ethics of work and social life.
The next meeting of the Forum for Inclusive Culture ("I-Forum") will take place on Wednesday, February 21, at 1:00 p.m. in the James E. Marks Intercultural Center (3225 Arch Street). This meeting is being co-sponsored by the Lindy Center and OED, and will circle around the topic of "community." We often refer to Drexel constituencies as students, faculty, professional staff, and community, but what role does community really play in life at Drexel? Please feel free to bring your lunch; we will provide some sweet treats. Email email@example.com to RSVP, provide feedback on the discussion topic, and/or suggest additional agenda items.
About the I-Forum: The I-Forum is an open-membership coalition of students, faculty, professional staff, and community members that gathers no less than quarterly to address issues of diversity and inclusion on Drexel’s campus. Meetings typically begin with announcements, have a central discussion topic, and close out with suggestions, determination of next steps, and troubleshooting. All are welcome to come and participate, and we value newcomers who keep the group fresh and responsive to developments on campus. Join us!
