May Symposium Diversity Conference Tuesday

In 2014, the Center for Faculty Innovation was pleased to partner with the Diversity conference planning team to add a new component to May Symposium – Diversity Conference Tuesday.  Diversity Conference Tuesday offered many of the sessions that were originally slated to be presented at the March Diversity conference (which was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions).  All of the diversity sessions came from members of the JMU community through an open call for proposals. These sessions provided the opportunity to exchange ideas on diversity-related issues in teaching and other interactions with students. They also aimed to help develop skills related to all forms of diversity in professional and personal environments.
