2021 Virtual Consultation for Senior Administrators

The Lilly Fellows Program presents

A Virtual Consultation for Senior Administrators:

Racial Injustice and Church-Related Colleges and Universities

March 23, 2021, 2:00 to 3:30 pm Central Time

In place of the annual Workshop for Senior Administrators, the Lilly Network will provide a second opportunity for senior administrators of Lilly Network Schools to meet together virtually in small groups to address the question: 

In light of this historical moment, how have our campuses addressed racial injustice over the past year?  What have we learned about ourselves and our institutions, and what hope do we offer our communities and stakeholders?

Specifically, we will address such questions as:

How do our institutions’ histories, traditions, missions, and guiding ethical and theological ideals:

  • Offer resources for understanding of and response to systematic racism in our nation?
  • Help us interrogate and understand our own institutions’ relationship to racial injustice?
  • Impede such investigations?
  • Cultivate hope and provide resources for justice for our institutions and broader communities?

Registration Information:

Participation in and registration for this consultation is offered to senior administrators at Lilly Network member institutions. Each institution is eligible to register one senior administrator (president, vice president, academic dean, provost, or equivalent).  Additional participants from member schools will be waitlisted until March 11, 2021, and will be added as slots become available.

Due to Overwhelming Demand, Registration Is Now Closed
If you have Registered, you will be emailed a Zoom Link for the Consultation
