GVSU to host 2015 Equity Within the Classroom Conference

The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, March 16th and 17th, 2015.

GVSU's Inclusion and Equity Division in collaboration with the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs will host the 2015 Equity Within the Classroom Conference, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the event. The conference is hosted annually as a collaborative effort between Michigan's King-Chavez-Parks (KCP) initiative and the state's public and independent colleges and universities. The event serves as an annual forum for faculty, administration, staff and post secondary supporters. The purpose of this forum is to review current research findings, annual retention outcome data, best practice strategies, and retention strategies to positively impact equality and achievement for under-represented students. Co-chairpersons for this conference are Dr. Dana Munk and Sean Huddleston.
