5th Annual Social Justice & Leadership Conference

"Work Bound in Truth"


The Multicultural Resource Center in collaboration with the Student Leadership Cohort invites you to join us for the 5th Annual Social Justice & Leadership Conference being held on  March 2, 2018. This year's conference will feature Dr. Kevin Gannon, director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and professor of History at Grand View University in Des Moines, IA. 

“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light."

George Washington

This quote by one of our nation's founding fathers has never been more significant than it is at this period in our collective history. Challenges to the fundamental needs of an equitable society are being initiated by those in positions of privilege and power at national levels. How do we interrupt this trend? How do we fight the nontruths that are permeating our social media and popular media outlets? How do we cross the red and blue lines to become more understanding and committed to building an equitable populace? 

For the participants of this conference, this is an opportunity to engage in dialogue through facilitated workshops to discover how we as a people can confront these injustices that are threatening our potential for inclusive and supportive communities. Social Justice and Equity work has always been critical to this mission, but is especially so in these times.

Workshops within the conference will address both social justice issues as it pertains to Race, Power, and Privilege as well as the ongoing need for trained leaders to help direct this very important work. To view the schedule and register, please select this link.
