"Identity, Inclusion & Social Transformation: Centering Class, Power, and Privilege"

Bucknell's 3rd Annual Diversity Summit begins on Tuesday, March 27 with a community dinner followed by keynote speaker Elizabeth Armstrong.  Wednesday, March 28 includes panels, workshops, dialogues, poster and other creative presentations that spotlight the expertise and experience of Bucknell students, staff and faculty.

The President's Diversity Council is pleased to invite faculty, staff, and students to propose a session for this year's summit. We encourage teams and individuals to share their relevant experience and expertise through a range of proposal types: presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and creative sessions. Suggestions for potential topics include: power and privilege; understanding how intersections of class play out on campus; connecting across class-why and how do/don't we?; class and politics; intersections of class with race, gender, and other social identities; class and health/health care; international perspectives on class; and socioeconomic status in the digital age.

Submit your proposal by Monday, Feb. 12.
