annual Diversity Summit on Inclusive Excellence
Diversity and Inclusion in higher education: 150 years of learning, growth, and hope
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 8-10th, 2014
The Diversity Summit began with a few undergraduate students coming together to talk about diversity. In 2007, the University of Denver made an institutional commitment to Inclusive Excellence, the philosophical and practical concept that inclusiveness and excellence are one in the same, and in that time the Summit has grown from twenty-five to more than six hundred participants. Originally, the Diversity Summit highlighted the success and goals of DU administration, faculty, staff and students but has grown to incorporate leaders in diversity and Inclusive Excellence outside the DU community. Historically, the Diversity Summit has featured keynotes that are active within academia, with last year being the first year to host a keynote from the business sector.
For 2014, we will host a community event on Thursday evening: a screening and discussion of the documentary American Promise. Friday will be the traditional Summit day of workshops. And Saturday will be our second "Day of Action," bringing primary school students and their families to campus.
