Stay tuned for more information on next year's Conference on Diversity and Inclusion to occur in mid-to-late fall 2017. More details will be available in early September.
About the Conference
The Conference on Diversity and Inclusion began at Stonehill in the Fall 2009 semester. The conference is designed to bring together students, faculty, and staff to discuss diversity and inclusion at Stonehill in a variety of ways. It is an opportunity for sharing programs, curriculum ideas, teaching practices, student experiences and leadership in areas that create and improve a culture of belonging at Stonehill. During the conference, participants and presenters facilitate constructive dialogue, interaction and understanding around significant issues within/between students, faculty, and staff from different racial/ethnic groups, geographical regions, faith traditions, identities and different types of teaching experiences.
The purpose of the conference is to engage a diverse audience of participants. Some of the sessions are considered "introductory" sessions while others focus on activism and justice work. We believe that it is important to travel the road together in this work, and the conference is driven by this philosophy.
