MSU TX unveils Charlye O. Farris justice center
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) – Midwestern State University has taken another step forward as it strives to create diversity and social justice for the community of Wichita Falls.
On October 29, the university inaugurated the Charlye O. Farris Resource Center for Social Justice.
It is named in honor of the late Farris, the first African-American female lawyer to practice law in Texas.
The SJRC is the perfect place to follow Farris’ legacy and help those who walk through its doors understand each other better.
“It really led to our idea of a resource center on social justice and to really providing educational opportunities around diversity inclusion. We also hope to align with community partners who are having the same conversations. So it’s really an external version of what we do on campus with our intercultural center, ”said Cammie Dean, assistant vice president of student affairs at Midwestern State University.
Dean said that while the center is not short on topics, it welcomes donations of books that could be useful in guiding these discussions on justice, diversity and inclusion.
