Network for Academic Renewal Conference
AAC&U's 4th Biennial Diversity and Learning Conference

Diversity and Learning: Education for a World Lived in Common
October 24–27, 2002 — St. Louis, Missouri

Higher education faces a challenge preparing students for an increasingly interdependent world—a world marked by permeable borders and persistent inequalities; a world of shifting boundaries between local and global, domestic, and international; a fractured world in profound need of socially responsible and more fully engaged citizens. For more than a decade AAC&U has helped campuses tap diversity as an educational and societal resource. This conference builds upon that by addressing:

  • cognitive and democracy outcomes of diversity initiatives
  • connections between U.S. and global diversity
  • religious pluralism at home and abroad
  • migration, hybridity, and identity
  • assessment of diversity courses, programs, and services
  • culturally informed democratic practices and pedagogies
  • enhancement of diversity work through technology
  • holistic approaches to student development

Join a national network of practitioners and researchers in St. Louis on October 24–27, 2002 to enhance existing campus diversity initiatives and chart the next frontiers of work. Diversity and Learning is a valuable meeting for faculty, administrators, students, and others interested in improving pedagogy, enhancing the curriculum, enriching the campus climate, leading systemic institutional change, promoting intergroup dialogues, and engaging communities.
