The ceremony/program runs from 11 am - 12 pm inside the BLUU Auditorium, followed by food, festivities, and fellowship from 12 pm - 1 pm outside on the pavers in front of the BLUU Arch.
Specifically, the program consists of three parts:
update/accounting of 7 Key RRI Recommendations unanimously approved by TCU's Board of Trustees in April 2021,
panel discussion reflecting on the path toward reconciliation with Team RRI moderated by Chancellor Victor Boschini,
and recognizing, reckoning, and reconciling with living descendants of Charley & Kate Thorp -- people of color indispensable and instrumental to the early growth of TCU.
Our festivities and fellowship hour currently includes performances from Ballet Folklorico, African Drumming and Native American dancing. This day is a welcome opportunity for us to connect and appreciate the many shades of purple that contribute to the constant improvement of our campus.
RRI Day, II is our signature event and your presence and participation will underscore the message that we can indeed come together to move forward together. If you plan to attend, make sure you bring a friend! We are so excited to see y'all there!
