Fall 2020 Symposium & Book Club:
3rd Annual Symposium on Diversity &
Inclusion in Research & Teaching
This year our theme is Diversity and Inclusion in Times of Crisis. The global disruption of everyday life caused by the coronavirus pandemic disproportionately strained, as nation-wide crises do, the most vulnerable groups in society. Our symposium will consider strategies, challenges, and best practices for addressing the needs of the most vulnerable in higher- learning environments in the midst of crisis, as well as ideas for keeping issues of diversity & inclusion at the forefront of research and teaching agendas in an increasingly virtual world.
Date and Time: Thursday, and Friday, September 17 & 18, 2020
Location: Conducted Virtually via Zoom

Join us for 2 days of concurrent & poster sessions, and 2 incredible keynote speakers: Dean O'Hara O'Connor, Dean of the FSU College of Law, and Dr. Derald Wing Sue, internationally renowned multicultural researcher and psychologist from Columbia University.
