Building Inclusive Campus Spaces

Dr. Chris Linder, Assistant Professor of College Student Affairs, University of Georgia – Guest Presenter

Most people on college campuses have genuinely good intentions in supporting students with varied backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.  However, sometimes what we don’t know impacts our work the most!  Additionally, “diversity,” “social justice,” and “inclusion” have become buzzwords on college campuses and have caused some “diversity burnout” among higher education professionals across the country.  In this presentation, Chris will explore diversity burnout with participants and share her research related to building inclusive campus environments.  Rooted in intersectionality theory, Chris will discuss building and maintaining inclusive campus environments, specifically focusing on self-awareness and small, every day strategies that can make a big difference in the lives of students. Participants will gain tools and skills for considering ways their work in higher education and social justice spaces might be more inclusive and explore strategies for avoiding diversity burnout.

Interfaith Leadership in a Time of Global Religious Conflict

Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core, Diversity Week Keynote Speaker

America is the most religiously diverse nation in human history and the most religiously devout nation in the West in an era of global religious conflict.  Will faith be a barrier of division or a bridge of cooperation? Eboo’s core belief is that religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He’s inspired to build this bridge by his faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage, and his American citizenship. He has spoken about this vision at places like the TED conference, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the country. He has written two books about interfaith cooperation, Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground. A reception will follow.  This presentation is a part of the White House Initiative on Service and Interfaith.
