The Cathedral of Learning behind flowers

The University Senate will hold its Spring Plenary on April 7 from noon until 2:30 p.m. Join to learn about progress at Pitt against the effects of systemic racism and toward equality. This year, the theme of the Spring Plenary is "Anti-racism and Equity."

Panel sessions will include discussions of University-wide efforts to increase diversity and equity, development of Pitt’s new Anti-Racism course and a review of specific findings of three of our University Senate Standing committees during the past year. Each panel session will be accompanied by a Q&A. Additionally, Chancellor Patrick Gallagher and Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor Ann E. Cudd will deliver remarks at the virtual event.
