The 6th Annual
Higher Education Diversity Summit



The Higher Education Diversity Summit is a day and a half conference, April 14 and 15, 2016, in Denver, Colorado, which promotes diversity and Inclusive Excellence in higher education and community.  The Summit draws approximately 700 participants, expert speakers, and practitioners. It delivers a series of workshops, discussion forums and generates opportunities for networking and debate designed to increase the understanding of and appreciation for multiple worldviews related to diversity, social justice, and inclusive excellence.

The theme, “How Did We Get Here?” is a simple question with complex individual and contextual meanings that underpin the 2016 Higher Education Diversity Summit. “How did we get here?” provides an entry point into critical inquiry and personal reflection. These questions facilitate a critique of our multiple realities and positions them parallel to, or within contemporary understandings of identity. This theme encourages the deconstruction of events, experiences, and interactions that shape who we are and how we may understand ourselves and others. 

The Steering Committee invites you to become a Presenter, Reviewer, or an Attendee of the Summit, which will take place on April 14 and 15, 2016, at the Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado.  To learn more about the Summit, please visit our website at or click the below links to connect with the Summit.
