The University of Illinois held its annual diversity breakfast on Friday, November 8th, at the iHotel. Sean Garrick--the inaugural Vice-Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion--gave the keynote address. He noted that, not only is this year's incoming class the largest in the university's history, but it is also the most diverse. Garrick cited recent initiatives such as Illinois Commitment and Illinois Promise as one of the driving forces behind this trend. We must now rise to the challenges of forging a truly inclusive living, learning, and working community that helps all members to become "their best selves," as Garrick put it. PJCS and HGMS will continue to do our utmost to advance those goals and foster increased understanding, connections, and meaningful conversations across our increasingly rich and varied community.
