Campus equity and diversity leaders to present at national educators conference
Evie Myers, vice president for equity, diversity and global outreach, and Lisa Hauck, director of the Office of Global Outreach, had a presentation on campus diversity and inclusion selected for a session at the NAFSA: Association of International Educators’ 66th annual conference. They are scheduled to present “Combining International and Multicultural Education: A New Approach to Inclusivity” at the May 25-30 event in San Diego.
In 2008, the Division of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach was established at NDSU, bringing together international and multicultural offices, staff and resources. The presentation features division leadership as they reflect on the challenges, opportunities and successes of broadening the traditional perspective of diversity and inclusion on campus.
Myers and Hauck presented the session at the November 2013 NAFSA Region IV conference in Rapid City, S.D, where it was selected as a “Best of Region” session.
NAFSA was founded in 1948 as the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers to promote the professional development of U.S. college and university officials responsible for assisting and advising the 25,000 foreign students who had come to study in the U.S. after World War II.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
