About this Event
Community, collaboration, commitment, learning, and inspiration: For six years, the seven institutions hosting the Tri-State Conference on Diversity and Inclusion have used these words as a guide in providing a truly distinctive, inclusive experience with emphasis on education and collaboration. This year’s conference is just a few months away, and we have gone virtual for 2021! Join us for a powerful and insightful experience featuring lectures, interactive workshops, panel discussions, and much more!
Each event is designed to share experiences, research, and emerging trends; attendees will have access to a whole week of vibrant, virtual experiences from September 20—24. Additionally, the conference will feature a Student Leadership Workshop, explicitly crafted for students, for the first time in our conference’s history.
The conference is free and open to students, faculty, professionals and the general public however, online registration is required.
