That's what we'd love to know! If you have suggestions, please reach out to angie-wild@uiowa.edu. Our DEI board is working hard on formulating education, community outreach, creating and funding scholarships, organizing events, and more. Diversity if having a seat at the table, Inclusion is having a voice; Belonging is having that voice be heard.
