Supporting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Honors Education

March 9-11, 2016 | Oakland University | Rochester, Michigan


To launch the National Society for Minorities in Honors (NSFMIH), Oakland University's Honors College is hosting a two day conference (beginning lunch 9th, ending late morning on 11th), offering a key opportunity for discussion and networking.

The focus of the inaugural conference will be on topics concerned with the support of diversity, equity and inclusion in college honors programs and honors colleges. While all topics pertaining to the theme are welcome, special attention will be given to presentation topics that include the creation of honors "pipelines" from high school to college, programmatic work on supporting diversity in honors, and topics focusing on specific under represented or under served populations, in relation to admission, enrollment or support, for example. This might include topics related to:

- Exploring the High School to College pipeline
- Enriching honors through diversity
- Race and/or ethnicity
- Gender and Gender Identity
- Sexual Orientation
- Student Success and Civility
- Economic diversity in honors
- The transfer student and honors equity

These are just a few examples!
Those who might be interested in attending include: Honors College/program faculty, Academic Affairs staff, Academic advisers, Admission officers.
