The roundtable event, which starts at 2 p.m., will encourage students to participate in a discussion about these issues. Space is limited and participants were asked to RSVP in advance.

“As one of the world’s great public universities, we have a responsibility to live out our core values of accessibility, diversity, equity and inclusiveness. We must be willing — as uncomfortable as it may be — to talk about whether and how we are living these out,” Cauce said.

The event will be live-tweeted on #RaceEquityUW.
