The Diversity and Equity Center (DEC) invites the university community to use our space for your meeting and event needs. There are three (3) spaces that can be reserved. A description of each is listed below. All rooms are equipped with A/V technology to conduct presentations using a laptop computer (if available).
Multipurpose Room (MPR)
The MPR is the DEC’s largest space and can hold up to 50 people comfortably when configured theater style. The space will accommodate 35-50 using the six foot tables provided. This space is perfect for assembly meetings and retreats, lectures, workshops, testing, classes, lunches and presentations. There are multiple whiteboards, 75 inch tv screen, and speakers for use in this room.
Ideal for executive council and board meetings, the Conference Room holds up to 15 people (12 comfortably) and includes a large meeting table, 50” flat-screen HDTV, VCR/DVD, and room to have light refreshments. This space is also great for small planning or study groups.
Space is available to faculty and staff who are interested in having office hours in the Diversity and Equity Center. This space can be used to connect with students regarding specific services offered through your program or department, or simply to be present for students accessing DEC services. *Reservations submitted by individuals who are not UofL staff or faculty will be cancelled.
The DEC does not accept room reservation requests for events outside of normal operating hours. Room reservations can only be made for the current academic year.
In an effort to track our usage, DEC staff will ask that a sign in sheet be submitted after each event. Failure to submit sign in sheets may result in the cancelation of future reservation requests.
You will receive a confirmation email regarding your reservation within 24 hours of receipt. Please note you may be asked to change room locations to better utilize space within the DEC. For example if your group will only have 8 attendees and your event is scheduled to take place in the MPR we may move your event to the Conference Room to accommodate a larger group
