"Building Community through Diversity: Personal Empowerment"
Brockport's 15th Annual Diversity Conference
Thursday, October 8, 2015

The Diversity Conference seeks to promote open-mindedness, celebrate diversity, and promote awareness of divergent views on our college campuses and within our communities. The conference also serves as a forum in which to establish or enhance self-awareness in relation to community building endeavors.

This year’s theme, “Building Community through Diversity: Personal Empowerment,” will highlight diversity as an important value in building and nurturing a community through dialogue that addresses the myriad of challenges facing our society, as well as our growth in understanding and acting upon issues of diversity.
