    Curated Webinar Series

    Starting with the 2019 fiscal year (September 1, 2018 - August 31, 2019), the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services will host a curated series of webinars on issues central to the Office's mission -- at the intersection of social justice; equity, diversity, and inclusion; literacy; and outreach. The focus for FY2019 will be literacy as a social justice issue. This includes equity in literacy, access to literacy, and multiple literacies. We will host these webinars quarterly and issue a call for presenters, but please contact ODLOS at any time if you have a webinar to propose for this series.
