The Office of the Vice President for Diversity is pleased to announce the call for session proposals for the 18th Annual Diversity Symposium. The 2017 Diversity Symposium will be held September 26-28 in the Lory Student Center.

This year we are asking presenters to consider trending topics of diversity and inclusion in higher education; topics directly relating to diversity initiatives at Colorado State; and for presenters to consider “What have you always wanted people to know about diversity?”

Session guidelines

  • Creativity is important in presentation style, format and title. Consider that participants will have a wide variety of learning styles. Highly participatory sessions are generally better received.
  • Attendees at the conference will consist of traditional and non-traditional age college students, community members, faculty, and staff. Please be sure to designate your target audience.
  • Priority consideration will be given to proposals that address diversity specifically.
  • Please note sessions are 1 hour in length

Presenters, remember to include time for discussion when planning your workshop session.
