Loyola University Chicago

Conference on Diversity & Equity 2014

Call for Proposals

June 11-13, 2014: Loyola University Chicago... See you soon!

By Tom Murrell and Barbara Zunder, University of San Francisco

Colleges and universities are seeing an increase of students with disabilities enroll at their institutions. These students' needs are more complex and
require more time to process, accommodate, and, sometimes, address from a legal perspective. This program will present an innovative service
delivery model which simplifies the intake and eligibility process while also fostering student autonomy and creating inclusive learning communities.

By Corinne Maekawa Kodama, Loyola University Chicago

Asian American students are a rapidly growing yet often misunderstood student population. Existing higher education paradigms and theoretical
orientations often do not fit Asian American college experiences, and demographics are changing quickly so practitioners may not feel prepared to
meet their needs. This session will draw on research and practice to engage participants in developing strategies to become better educators of and
advocates for Asian American students, regardless of functional area or type of institution.

Proposal Information

Our conference theme, Committing to Faith, Justice and Action: Advancing the Movement, inspires us to move beyond ideas and towards sustainable action. There is no better place than Loyola University Chicago and our bustling city, to develop and implement an action plan for advancing diversity and inclusion at our respective campuses.

Special consideration will be given to program proposals that offer innovative, stimulating and scholarly approaches to promoting diversity/equity in a manner that produces institutional transformation. We encourage submissions that include interactive methods of presenting and learning.
