2014 Diversity Symposium Call for Proposals

The Office of the Vice President for Diversity is pleased to announce the call for session proposals for the 14th Annual Diversity Symposium. The 2014 Diversity Symposium will be held Sept 17-19 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.

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

All proposals, including a session abstract of no more than 200 words and a presenter bio of no more than 100 words, are due on June 2. Should your proposal be selected, the information from that form provided will be used in our conference program and advertisement. To see how the materials might be used, view the 2013 Program & Schedule.
