May 12 – Academic Vulnerabilities: A DSC Conference on Diversity

Over the past few years, issues of racial, gender, sexual and other diversities and their multiple and varied definitions have become central to national discussions about equality, equity and social justice. Diversity in higher education- what constitutes diversity, how it can be addressed, and the consequences of its absence- has become an important issue across the CUNY campuses.


The DSC developed this conference in order to provide a forum for the growing number of doctoral students engaged in research, advocacy and conversations about diversity. The goal of this timely and crucial conference will be to engage Graduate Center students by bringing together scholars, students, and activists from across disciplines. Workshops and panels will focus on innovative pedagogies, intersectionality, and creating greater accessibility for traditionally marginalized groups.



(All events will be in room 5409)

Thurs, May 12, 3-5pm

Friday, May 13, 3:30-5:30pm

Saturday, May 14, 10am-3pm
