Holy Cross to Host Higher Education Diversity Recruitment Conference
By: Nick Markantonatos, College of the Holy Cross.
The College of the Holy Cross will host a conference on data-driven diversity practices in higher education on Nov. 13 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Hogan Campus Center. The theme of this year’s conference is “Eliminating Opportunity Gaps: Promising Data-Driven Diversity and Inclusion Practices in Higher Education.”
The conference, organized by the New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium and the Leading for Change Higher Education Diversity Consortium, will bring together university leaders and administrators from across the region to focus on diversity and inclusion practices in higher education with a focus on eliminating opportunity gaps for students, faculty, and staff from under-represented groups.
Keynote remarks will be delivered by Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, a national recognized expert on closing opportunity gaps through data-driven diversity and inclusion practices. The conference will also feature presentations and panels by representatives from member institutions.
Hrabowski has served as president of UMBC since 1992. His research and publications focus on science and math education, with special emphasis on minority participation and performance. He chaired the National Academies’ committee that produced the recent report, “Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation: America’s Science and Technology Talent at the Crossroads.” He was also named by President Obama to chair the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African Americans.
Hrabowski will sign copies of his book “Holding Fast to Dreams: Empowering Youth from the Civil Rights Crusade to STEM Achievement” immediately after the keynote address. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
Holy Cross is hosting the conference as part of its continuing efforts to support diversity and inclusion. The College recently appointed Amit Taneja to the newly-created position of associate dean for diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer. http://news.holycross.edu/blog/2015/07/22/holy-cross-hires-amit-taneja-to-fill-new-role-as-chief-diversity-officer/
Funding for the conference is being provided by Holy Cross, New England HERC, and Bridgewater State University and is free for New England HERC and Leading for Change consortia members.
