The Sally Dickson Lecture on Diversity, Inclusion and Reflection was created in 2015 by the vice provost for student affairs to honor the contributions of Sally Dickson, former associate vice provost for student affairs and dean of educational resources. Dickson's work in Student Affairs was dedicated to community-building and engagement among students, faculty and staff.
