OLLI Dialog on Freedom & Diversity with Dilip Das
Freedom is a core value, a proud symbol of what it means to be American. The meaning of freedom has evolved over the 243 years since our country’s founding. For many, freedoms were denied or constrained by laws, policies, and dominant culture. Today, in 2019, more individuals and groups feel a sense of freedom than ever before, but many, still, are marginalized. We will talk, as an OLLI group, about freedom and how an understanding of diversity and inclusion is deeply embedded into the meaning of freedom. Dilip Das is Vice Provost of Equity and Inclusion at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is a liaison for 12 UM units on campus implementing their five-year Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Strategic Plans. He is the Accreditation Liaison Officer at UM for the Higher Learning Commission’s 2020 UM Reaccreditation. Dilip also leads and helps manage statewide college access grant programs and mentors both graduate and undergraduate students. Dilip holds a doctorate in higher education administration, a master’s in science education, and a bachelor’s degree in biology.
