Submissions for the 2021 Diversity Symposium are now closed.

The selection committee reserves the right to select sessions which align with the mission and vision of the Office of Inclusive Excellence.

Proposal Submissions

We ask presenters to consider trending topics of diversity in higher education; BIPoC communities and support; religious inclusion; anti-racism initiatives and efforts; Trans and non-binary communities and support; current national and international dynamics; and topics directly relating to diversity initiatives at Colorado State. Sessions will be selected based on the criteria below:

Session criteria

  • Creativity is important in presentation style, format and title. Consider that participants will have a wide variety of learning styles. Highly participatory sessions are generally better received; please remember to include time for discussion.
  • Attendees at the conference will consist of traditional and non-traditional age college students, community members, faculty, and staff. Please be sure to designate your target audience.
  • Priority consideration will be given to proposals that cite peer-reviewed academic sources in the development of session content.
  • Please note, session windows are 90 minutes in length.
