2019 Diversity, Equity, and Student Success Conference: Engaged Inclusivity: Perceptions, Realities, and Aspirations

Organization(s): Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U)

Mar 28, 2019Mar 30, 2019

The dynamism of higher education is the opportunity to participate in an environment where intellectual diversity is cherished, where a free exchange of ideas is appreciated, and where student diversity is valued. Higher education institutions represent an educational space where inclusion, not exclusion, should thrive. However, this is not always the reality for all students and educators, even though the aspiration is to create educational environments where all participants can achieve their full potential and develop their human gifts. This conference will examine what it means to work toward a campus environment where inclusivity thrives through constant reflection, analysis, and accountability. Engaged inclusivity transforms the dialogue on inclusion from general acceptance and tolerance of difference to active institutional transformation, based on the belief that the richness of our culture is because of our diversity and a recognition of our common humanity. The conference will provide a forum for educators, students, and community stakeholders to raise critical questions about institutional and external practices, policies, and structures that hinder full inclusion and to identify strategies for improving the educational environment for all participants.
