Paul College Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Conference

In 2023, Paul College offered our inaugural DEI conference, with the theme Cultivate Community. The conference brought together students, staff, faculty, alumni, business leaders, and interested members of the community to share best practices and trending skills needed to advance DEI. From the classroom to the workplace and beyond, students learned about inclusive practices and had conversations about DEI biases and blind spots.

In 2024, with programmatic partnership support from the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Paul College hosted its second annual Diversity, Equity, & Inclusive Conference. The theme, Building Bridges, was both a nod to our two colleges coming together, but also to the conference’s core purpose: to create connections across a diverse group of students, staff, faculty, alumni, business leaders, & interested members of the local community to learn, share, & grow in the DEI space.
