A call for proposals for Salve Regina’s first Mercy Summit on Equity and Inclusion
Salve Regina is re-establishing the creation of a Mercy Summit on Diversity and Inclusion for Friday, April 9, from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p. m. This event was supposed to happen in March 2020, but it was unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic.
The theme for this inaugural diversity summit will be “An Examination of Best Practices to Enhance Diversity Dialogue on Campus,” and right now the University is asking for program proposals to be submitted for consideration for the summit.
Faculty and staff members are invited to propose lectures, presentations or panels. The summit will be completely virtual, although exact program formats will be determined by session proposals.
The committee for the summit is looking for program proposals that help achieve the theme and learning outcomes below.
An Examination of Best Practices to Enhance Diversity Dialogue on Campus
- Each participant will be able to identify and understand the scope of issues related to diversity and inclusion on college campuses.
- Each participant will have a heightened awareness of the issues of implicit bias.
- Each participant will be able to identify ways to facilitate meaningful diversity dialogue based on best practices.
Proposals for the summit can be submitted here. Deadline to submit is Monday, March 15.
If anyone has questions regarding submitting the proposals or the summit itself, please contact Sami Nassim, assistant vice president for student success and director of the Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention, at email@example.com.
