| February 25, 2013

Part of the intriguing programming for the upcoming Feb. 28 Global Inclusion & Diversity Summit at the home campus is the inclusion of two student panels to discuss diversity topics.

Join the conversation at the Feb. 28 summit.

The first one, moderated by Deborah Pierce, director of the Center for International Education, is on the topic of “Communicating Across Cultures. That one takes place at at 11:30 a.m. in the Emerson Library Conference Room.

The other student panel, moderated by Robin Jefferson-Higgins, assistant professor and chair of the Legal Studies Department, is titled, “Why Diversity Matters: The Students’ Perspective Regarding the Essential Role of a More Diverse Faculty and Staff.” That panel takes place from 2:45 – 4 p.m. in the University Center Sunnen Lounge.

Both panels promise to be thought-provoking opportunities to hear student perspectives in their own words.

The entire summit is an outcome from engagement with the faculty and staff diversity working group and discussions with students on their priorities via the Delegates’ Agenda. A full day is scheduled with sessions covering a variety of diversity topics. (See this previous post for background on the DisAbility Project.)
