A few dozen members of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh community came together outside Polk Library on Thursday afternoon for a rally organized by the Division of Academic Support of Inclusive Excellence. Students, faculty, staff and administrators spent about an hour together under a mix of fall sunshine and sprinkling rain to chant, chalk walkways and share some time together. Damira Grady, new Associate Vice Chancellor for Inclusive Excellence and Chief Diversity Officer, said the gathering was intended to be simply that—a gathering. The idea was to bring people together for a short time to talk, express themselves and share resources. Attendees came with signs bearing slogans like “Black lives matter,” “Titans, we see you” and “Titans unite” and chanted refrains about ending racism, sexism, ableism and other forms of discrimination.
