The latest issue of Engage, available online now, focuses on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s efforts to become more diverse and inclusive.
In the cover story “Sewing Inclusion into the Fabric of UW Oshkosh,” Sylvia Carey-Butler, UWO’s associate vice chancellor of Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence, encourages student to meet new people and take part in new experiences. She not only is focused on increasing the numbers of diverse students on campus but also retaining students after they arrive.
“We have a moral obligation to graduate students we admit, and to ensure that all students achieve their fullest potential,” Carey-Butler said. “If a student graduates from UW Oshkosh the same as when they arrived, then we have failed them.”
Other stories in the new issue of Engage include:
- A profile of a UWO human services major’s journey to becoming a trans man.
- A feature about two UW Oshkosh alumni who are championing inclusivity by promoting the benefits of hearing loops and similar technology that enhance daily life for those with hearing loss.
- A sampling of a radio TV film major’s lyrics in “Native American hip hop.”
- An update on a powerful new nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer that is boosting UWO’s chemistry research and teaching.
