Vice president for inclusive excellence
The year 2020 will be remembered as a year of constant change and inner reflection, events that inspired artist Frankie Slaughter to create “Spring Twenty Twenty” which now resides in the Drysdale Student Center.
Eighty-five years ago, on Nov. 25, 1935, the first Virginia chapter of the National Conference of Christians and Jews was founded at what was then Lynchburg College.
COVID-19 might have disrupted a lot this past spring, but Dr. Robert Canida, the University of Lynchburg’s vice president for inclusive excellence, was determined to not let the pandemic affect the Office of Equity and Inclusion and its efforts to create a more inclusive, respectful campus environment.
