Event Details

Join us for DIRECTO’s 2nd Annual University-Wide Symposium on Diversity & Inclusion in Research & Teaching, and Book Club! The symposium will take place on Friday, September 27th, 2019, and the book club will occur the following four Fridays, to “continue the conversation.”

The Symposium will be held on Sept. 27th, from 9:00am – 5:00pm in the Augustus B. Turnbull III FSU Center

The Symposium Welcome will be given by President John Thrasher. Keynote speakers are Dr. Pamela McCauley, and Dr. James Frazier, and breakout and poster sessions will be facilitated by faculty, staff, students, and postdocs from FSU, TCC, FAMU, Valdosta State, and Auburn. In addition to the symposium, there will be an accompanying book group based on Transforming Understandings of Diversity in Higher Education: Demography, Democracy, and Discourse. This book will lend itself to discussion of how particular topics in diversity and inclusion (race, gender, disability/ability, etc.) can and should be best approached when we teach and present our research
