OCCUPYING THE ACADEMY -- JUST HOW IMPORTANT IS DIVERSITY WORK IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion

Date and Time: January 23, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 3:15 PM
Location: Provost's Conference Room,

3rd Floor Rendleman Hall

"This webinar will review the work in the recently published Occupying the Academy: Just How Important is Diversity Work in Higher Education? This work is organized as an edited volume of Critical Race Theory-informed institutional case studies written by U.S.-based public higher education "equity/diversity workers" at Chief Diversity Officer, Mid-Level Administrator, Faculty, and other institutional levels, working across student, academic, administrative, and other institutional locations. [...]

This webinar will particularly benefit equity/diversity workers (and related constituents/stakeholders) who have experienced challenges in their work and/or are concerned about their local or the national climate for diversity work in especially public higher education. The key objective of this webinar is to identify efficacious strategies for responding to common challenges faced by higher education equity/diversity workers that are supported by the kinds of empirical evidence purported to drive the academy."
