Diversity Research Symposium

 

The Diversity Research Symposium (DRS) was co-founded in 2009 by Linh Nguyen Littleford (Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological Science) and Charles R. Payne (former Assistant Provost for Diversity, former Director of the Office of Institutional Diversity, and Professor of Secondary Education), both at Ball State University. The DRS aims to 1) provide an educational environment in which faculty, staff, community members, and students from all disciplines who are interested in cultural diversity issues can learn, interact, share ideas, and network with one another and 2) encourage members of academic institutions to infuse cultural diversity issues into their research, curricula, and professional development.

Organizing and hosting responsibilities are rotated every year among three universities (Ball State University, Indiana State University, and Indiana University Southeast). In selecting the symposium's theme, keynote speakers, and activities, the organizers highlight the diversity-related values and objectives at their respective institutions while achieving the goals of the DRS.
