    Demystifying Diversity: Uncovering and Exploring the Benefits of a Truly Diverse and
                     Inclusive Higher Education Campus Community

Are the traditional reasons for wanting to diversify the student body, staff, and faculty at
institutions of higher education compelling and progressive enough to provide for stimulating
and ongoing dialogue or have they begun to stagnate leaving us desensitized to the entire issue?
What doorways has institutional diversity’s growth from a simple ethical requirement to a
means for ensuring global competitiveness opened? What is the role of higher education in
promoting an understanding of, and deep appreciation for, human diversity, inclusivity, and the
many positive implications for democratic societies?

We invite oral presentations, poster presentations, academic panels and workshops from faculty,
administrators and graduate students, which may, (but do not necessarily have to), address the theme of this
conference and the questions posed above, whether from a research, teaching or practice perspective.

Students of color, women and other underrepresented students are especially encouraged to present their own
individual research. The research has to be original and need not be on the specific questions posed
above. We seek to feature the research of graduate students and undergraduate students in order to
recognize the outstanding research work of diverse students in the academy.

Student Awards for Best Oral Presentation ($200) and Best Poster Presentation ($150) will be given in each
of the three divisions: Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences. Judges will evaluate all presentations and
provide written feedback to presenters.
