Diversity Symposium call for proposals

The Office of the Vice President for Diversity will host the 15th annual Diversity Symposium Sept. 23-25 in the Lory Student Center, and is now accepting session proposals for the symposium.

This year, presenters are asked to consider trending topics of diversity in higher education, topics directly relating to diversity initiatives at Colorado State, and for presenters to consider current national and international dynamics.

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 should remember to include time for discussion when planning workshop sessions.

All proposals, including a session abstract of no more than 150 words and a presenter bio of no more than 100 words, are due by July 1, 2015.
