11th Annual Conference on Diversity

"ALL Included, ALL Engaged"


Geared toward JMU Faculty and Staff, the Diversity Conference is an all-day event located in the Festival Conference and Student Center which allows you to participate in your choice of three informational or workshop sessions. Morning refreshments, lunch, and afternoon refreshments are served.  In the middle of the day, the IDEA, DEAP, and WOD Awards will be given out to recipients.

DUE TO HIGH ENROLLMENT, ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. WE WELCOME YOU TO JOIN US AT THE FESTIVAL CONFERENCE CENTER FOR WALK-IN REGISTRATION AT 8:00 AM ON MARCH 15, 2017.

During the Conference, we invite you to express what diversity means to you through the medium of mosaic. Stop by the third floor of Rose Library to try your hand at mosaic creation and contribute to a lasting piece of art.  Participants will have the opportunity to select from a beautiful array of glass tile to create a piece that will measure 6” x 24” and be placed on permanent display at Rose Library.  Mosaic artist Sarah Swanlund, along with members of the Libraries & Educational Technologies Diversity Council, will be on hand to help and inspire.  Aprons and all materials will be provided.
