Destination Diversity is a series of innovative presentations on how faculty and instructional staff can approach teaching challenges related to diversity. We bring in (virtually and face-to-face) a collection of voices to spark thoughtful conversation, mindful reflection, and positive action in the classroom. For 2014, we have an outstanding roster of presenters.
