KU Faculty & Staff Book It
Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity, KU Faculty/Staff BookIt is a program focused around monthly topics. Each month there will be a book that “anchors” the month, but there will also be various types of other articles and blog posts recommended. The goal of this is not that you check out all of this, rather the intent is you pick with what works with your schedule and/or interest. Our intent with this is to foster and facilitate discussion amongst faculty/staff on these topics with what works for each person! There will be online discussion available in a closed facebook group, and one in-person gathering scheduled for each topic.
