The Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Conference offers CUNY faculty the opportunity to share research-based evidence, present new ideas, discuss experiences with colleagues, and develop constructive actions for positive change in the belief that diversity in all its manifestations is a driver of success for the CUNY community.
2017 Conference Program Overview
The third biennial CUNY Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Conference, held March 31, 2017, addressed a range of critically important issues and challenges related to the University’s efforts to diversify the faculty while fostering an inclusive community of scholars and learners. Building on the success of past years, the aims of the 2017 conference are to strengthen recruitment and support retention by sharing best practices, and to promote sustainable cross-campus collaborations. The 2017 theme is “CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity & Intersectionality in Action.
Continuing CUNY’s legacy of faculty research & praxis, the 2017 Diversity & Inclusion Conference was the best ever, featuring provocative plenaries, 27 concurrent sessions, student poster sessions, for over 300 engaged participants.
