The Diversifying Scholarship conference at UVA will advance the commitment of the university to inclusivity by addressing several critical needs in higher education; namely, expanding scholarship focused on socially marginalized communities, reducing inequality, and alleviating the effects of discrimination. We seek to promote connections among undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty from different disciplines, fostering a commitment to inclusive research, pedagogy and collaborative problem solving on social issues. Moreover, we hope that deepening the institution-wide commitment to inclusivity will more effectively extend the impact of academic work on social justice issues beyond the university community and advance our collective mission to recruit and retain diverse students and faculty.
This event will highlight the diverse work being done across campus in the arts, social and physical sciences, humanities, education, and beyond.
This event is free and open to the public.
Lunch will be provided for attendees who register in advance.
