Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Conference
The College of Education’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Conference is an annual meeting held in the Spring semester of each academic year. Our event brings together students, faculty, staff, and local community members to engage in thoughtful dialogue around issues of multiculturalism, social justice, and advocacy.
Our hope is to provide a collaborative learning environment to help us build a more equitable community within and outside of the College of Education, and to address topical issues affecting our students and colleagues. Past years have included themes around mental health support & well-being care, deep poverty, anti-racism, disability justice, and more.
Our next conference will be held in Spring 2024.
