Call for Proposals: ASA/Equity and Inclusion Spring Conference June 10-11, 2021

We are looking forward to an informative and productive joint ASA/Equity and Inclusion Spring Conference on June 10-11, 2021.

We hope you and your campus colleagues will join us for this year’s virtual conference focused on Breaking Barriers. This year’s conference is being provided at no cost to participants. To meet the critical goals for Equity 2030, we will focus on educational disparities, promote student success and completion, and address institutional barriers to success.

As educators, we are called to be part of the solution, serving as leaders by exhibiting the courage to actively address these issues.

With two days of thoughtful dialogue on these critical issues, we hope it will inspire practical strategies to be implemented on campuses throughout the system.
