He will discuss his work within the context of our new COLL 350 (Difference, Equity, Justice) requirement.

The sessions with Dr. Steele will be held in Miller Hall (Mason School of Business) 1082. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. If you can't make the entire day, please come for whichever session(s) you can. Please RSVP by Friday, Jan. 24 here.
