22nd Annual Diversity Conference: Creating Brave Spaces

Creating Brave Spaces is designed to promote engagement and provide a platform for respectful yet challenging dialogue. Brave spaces are where diversity of thought and opinion can coexist simultaneously within our community. The conference will focus on strategies to create, foster, and sustain brave spaces throughout SUNY Brockport.

Faculty, we strongly encourage you to incorporate assignments into your syllabi that align with the themes of the conference. Encouraging your students to attend the conference will facilitate further discussion and reflection within the classroom.

Proposal submission will be open starting on October 20, 2023, and can be submitted online.

The early bird proposal submission deadline is November 20, 2023, and the extended deadline is December 20, 2023.

Tips for the proposal submission process:

  • Student presenters must co-present with a faculty/staff member.
  • Presentations, roundtables, panel discussions, and poster presentations will be considered.
  • Proposals should reflect the conference theme.
  • Sessions should be 45-75 minutes long, including time for Q&A.
