UConn’s Life-Transformative Education Task Force is pleased to announce the kick-off of its monthly LTE speaker series with a talk by Dr. Frank Tuitt, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer at UConn. Dr. Tuitt arrived at UConn in 2020 from the University of Denver, where he was a faculty member and Chief Diversity Officer from 2015-19. Dr. Tuitt will speak on how to ensure that the values of LTE – identity, agency, and purpose – are available to all students, particularly students of color.
Sessions for Spring 2021 will focus on issues such as creating equitable faculty advising structures, faculty-staff cooperation, and building inclusive experiential learning opportunities in the classroom.
