The President’s Commission on the Status of Black Faculty & Staff Affairs at Oregon State University is hosting its inaugural State of Black Affairs Summit. The purpose of this event is to build support for Black communities across Oregon. Please put May 25th from 8am-6pm on your calendars, register, and share (forward) this hyperlinked invitation with your department and affiliated organizations. In addition to a continental breakfast and lunch, this event offers concurrent sessions, prominent speakers, a keynote address, and a chance to network followed by a happy hour. Our hope is that this will become an annual event to reflect on where we have been and to bring leaders together to strategize on how to better support and center Black lives. Thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate reach out to me directly, or to Terrance Harris (co-chair of PCSBFSA) and/or Bridget Jones (secretary).
