The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Diversity Councils, and the Graduate College are pleased to announce the Hawks of Color event schedule for Spring 2022. Be sure to register here in advance below to save your spot.
Hawks of Color is a place of welcome and community building while celebrating excellence! Formerly Faculty and Staff of Color, Hawks of Color is a re-envisioned community space to support and promote conversations among historically underrepresented, global majority, and/or marginalized faculty, staff, postdocs, and students at the University of Iowa. In addition to uplifting our voices and brilliance, attendees will have an opportunity to gather with others.
