Diversity, Inclusiveness, and Early Bird Registration Extension

September 29, 2017 6:07 PM | ACHE Home Office (Administrator)


A Panel Discussion on Diversity and Inclusiveness

at the

79th Annual ACHE Conference & Meeting


Continuing education continues to expand into the aggressive recruitment of underserved student populations, by way of community college articulation agreements and grant-supported initiatives focused specifically on the recruitment and retention of underrepresented populations in STEM. But as the challenge continues to boost enrollments and retain these students – and in light of pending changes to the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program – there is less time to focus on diversity and inclusion programming and strategies that help not only with student satisfaction and retention, but also of those diverse faculty and staff who support them. The panel will share their insights into such topics as recruitment of diverse faculty and staff, mentorship, research projects with diverse faculty and students, and innovative engagement.

Panel Moderator:

  • Dr. Belinda Biscoe, Interim Vice President for University Outreach, University of Oklahoma


  • Dr. John Armendariz, Vice Provost of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion at Northeastern University
  • Dr. Cris Cullinan, Co-chair of the National Advisory Council for the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education
  • Dr. Jane Irungu, Executive Director of the Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies at the University of Oklahoma

  Join the conversation about diversity and inclusiveness in continuing higher education at #ACHEimagine!
