The Scholarship of Diversity and Inclusion in the Academy: Lessons Learned and the Work Ahead for Universities in the 21st Century 

At this special convening of students, faculty, staff, alumni, thought leaders and innovators, we will explore how higher education engages in the work of developing and sustaining an increasingly diverse and inclusive academic community. Through plenary panel discussions, workshops, interactive seminars, and networking activities, we will engage in critical discussions that consider the broad range of identities, perspectives and experiences (race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, etc.) represented in higher education institutions today, and how relevant research and scholarship informs the work of advancing diversity and inclusion in the academy.

Presented by the Office of Institutional Diversity
