The Office of the President is pleased to announce the 12th Annual Diversity Conference to be held on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at the Festival Conference and Student Center. This year’s theme of Voices of Diversity, Visions of Inclusion will focus on the need for communication and how it can be a source of power and strength for creating an environment of inclusiveness in higher education.

The selection committee seeks proposals that clearly articulate their workshop’s ability to address relevant issues. Workshops should enhance understanding and skills, while also contributing to productive and positive change within higher education, our community, and beyond.

  • Proposals should directly relate to the conference theme.
  • Proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups of faculty, staff, and community members. This conference does not accept proposals from students.

Any questions should be directed to James Robinson robinsjr@jmu.edu, chair of the conference planning committee.
