Diversity, Learning, and Student Success: Shifting Paradigms and Challenging Mindsets

Thursday, March 17th - Saturday, 19th, 2016

The complexities of our history with diversity - in both the distant past and more recently - compel us as educators to engage in difficult, but essential, dialogue to identify both institutional and individual barriers that stand in the way of our reaching full and meaningful inclusion for all students in higher education. Explore how to address entrenched attitudes and policies and move to asset-based models for more effectively advancing diversity, student learning, and success; engage in "courageous conversations" that are problem-oriented and solution-driven; and expand our capacity to fully serve and prepare all students for lifelong success and engaged citizenship.
