The Unity Connections Conference (formerly known as the Unity Week Diversity Symposium) will take place on January 21, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the L.A. Pittenger Student Center. The goals of this year’s conference are to help participants: (1) Construct meaning from ideas and concepts related to diversity and inclusion; (2) Explore unique human experiences that make up the lives of everyone; (3) Understand the intersection of socially and culturally constructed identities based on race, ethnicity, gender/gender expression, sexuality, class, age, ability, and religion; and (4) Develop ways to build an inclusive community at Ball State University.

The conference will feature discussion, facilitation, lectures, and a keynote address. There will also be several program sessions related to diversity and presented by undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff of Ball State University. Registration is open to all students, faculty, staff, and community members. Register for the conference, HERE.

The Unity Connections Conference is sponsored by the Multicultural Center, Office of Student Life, Housing and Residence Life, and Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services.
