Title: Creating Credible and Meaningful Practice through Diversity & Inclusion
Description: At Florida State University, the level of a student’s understanding and respect for diversity is an indicator of success in our work within Student Affairs. In order to raise the level of understanding of diversity across campus, engaging and delivering culturally appropriate programs and services are useful in creating a more welcoming and inclusive FSU community.
This year’s half-day conference will focus on enhancing our awareness, knowledge and skills in the area of multicultural competence to work more effectively with diverse student populations and issues related to diversity. A few highlights you can look forward to include: an interactive discussion on the results from our recent campus climate survey; hear from a panel of students on their diversity experiences on campus; introduction to the new Diversity & Inclusion Certificate; and a chance to dialogue with colleagues! We hope that you’ll join us and look forward to your participation.
We hope to see you there! Please email Alyssa Gill (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any additional questions or call 644-5590.
