The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Diversity Committee sponsors a Diversity Symposium on February 16, 2011 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in Campus Center 301 and UCB 127. The committee is seeking presentations from faculty, students and community members that facilitate discussion about research, papers, projects or performances that address the symposium theme: “Diversity: Sustainability, Social Justice, and Health.”

“This informative, inspiring, imaginative, and interactive symposium has the potential to connect people to their passions and one another in ways that will foster sustainability and social justice, that can generate new synergies and alliances,” said Dr. Catherine Becker, associate professor of communication and Diversity Committee chair.

To apply as a symposium presenter, send a one-page submission describing the presentation, desired learning outcomes, and the amount of time requested to Becker at beckerc@hawaii.edu by December 15.
