Fall 2018 Conference • Diversity and Inclusion in an Ever-Changing Political Environment
October 30 - 31, 2018 • Marriott Hotel & Conference Center • Normal, IL
Please join us as we create spaces that work to bridge divides and challenge us all to become better allies. This conference is aimed at continuing to honor the contributions and talents of our diverse community and further dismantle systems of oppression.
On October 30-31, 2018, Illinois State University and the surrounding community have an opportunity to unite together to continue the action-oriented dialogue that allows us to challenge oppressive behaviors within ourselves and at the systems level. We will explore how we can support and empower those most affected by this behavior while simultaneously confronting the privilege and bias that operate widely within our community. The sessions on internationalization and international education will focus on topics such as comprehensive internationalization of ISU, global learning both in and outside of classrooms and mentoring international students.
Previous years’ conferences brought to light systemic oppression that has been plaguing our community. This year we seek quality proposals that will continue to expound on what is impacting our community, but we also seek quality proposals that serve to will also provide tangible strategies and recommendations that can empower individuals to take a more active role in breaking down and dismantling these oppressive systems.
In addition to the topics and areas that have been covered by CRCC conferences during the past two years, we are adding an international dimension to this year’s conference to reflect on what diversity and inclusiveness mean to us at ISU and our community while we continue to internationalize the university.
This year, the CRCC committee is pleased to announce three exciting speakers at this year's event.
