Diversity Summit on Inclusive Excellence “Fifty Years Since Selma: Your Voice Still Matters”

Diversity Summit

The 2015 Diversity Summit will kick off with TED-like talks featuring the Renew DU postdoctoral fellows and other researchers who are part of the Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE). The day will also feature lunch with MSNBC analyst and civil rights lawyer Michelle Bernard, followed by faculty, staff and student-led workshops and a time for action and engagement. 

As you are preparing your courses for the winter quarter, please consider incorporating the Diversity Summit as part of your syllabi. If you are teaching a Friday class, you might make attendance at the Summit a part of your regular class schedule. If you teach on a different day, consider designing an extra credit assignment that will encourage students to attend the Summit and to integrate learning from the Summit into your class.

Registration is now open for the DU Law Review symposium, CrImmigration: Crossing the Border Between Criminal Law and Immigration Law. The emerging field of crimmigration law explores the convergence of criminal law and immigration law. Once two distinct areas of law, the fields have become increasingly intertwined as a result of recent political, social and legal developments. This transformation has created a dramatic shift in the interplay between courts and law enforcement with escalating consequences for immigrants.
