Day of Understanding

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion held the first annual Day of Understanding in 2021. Classes are suspended for the day so students can attend the events and presentations. First year students were required to attend at least one of the presentations in 2021 and we will move to make it a requirement for all students beginning in 2022.
The event is open to the public as well as Bryant students, faculty and staff. All of the panel discussions and displays are held in locations on campus that are accessible to parking for visitors.
