Register Today: Diversity Conference - The Resegregation of Higher Education: How Diverse Are Our Spaces

There is still time to register for "The Resegregation of Higher Education: How Diverse Are Our Spaces" - the first event in our series of Diversity Conferences at Monroe Community College. The Diversity Conference explores topics that are essential to creating an inclusive, welcoming environment where dialogue and civic engagement are encouraged.

MCC will host this one-day conference on Thursday, October 4, 2018. The conference will explore structural barriers to student achievement and new ways to transform our spaces into diverse and inclusive environments with the goal of educating confident learners and achievers. The event will be held from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm in the Warshof Conference Center, R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center (Monroe A & B).

The presentation will also be video-streamed to MCC's Downtown Campus, High Falls A & B.

We are honored to have two nationally recognized leaders as keynote speakers. Ms. Sarita Brown, President for Excelencia in Education, a nonprofit organization based in Washington D.C. that focuses on accelerating Latinx student success, and Dr. Fred A. Bonner, II, Professor and Endowed Chair in Educational Leadership and Counseling at Prairie View A&M University, a prominent educator and scholar whose research focuses on the success of African-American males. An interactive activity encouraging participants to incorporate learnings from the keynotes into their practice will follow both presentations, and a book signing by Dr. Bonner will take place at the conclusion of the conference.

Please register online by Thursday, September 27, 2018. This event is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us!
