ALBANY, N.Y. (Dec. 2, 2016) — A conversation about faculty diversity will be held Monday, Dec. 5, at 5 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom.

The event, part of a Conversations for Change series of campus-wide dialogues, is organized by student leadership including the Student Association, in partnership with the Conversations for Change committee.

Monday’s event is designed to engage students, faculty and staff in a conversation on the state of faculty diversity on campus, particularly as it compares to the diversity of the student body.

The event will begin with a short presentation from senior Beny Poy, one of the organizers, and from Jack Mahoney of UAlbany’s Office of Institutional Research. The two will talk about faculty diversity trends on campus and in the SUNY system.

And then the conversations open up. Participants will engage in facilitated table dialogues to share their own experiences and insight on the issue, and offer ideas on diversity and inclusivity on campus.

The Conversations for Change committee consists of faculty, staff and student representatives, including the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Student Programs, The Student Association, Intercultural Affairs, Human Resources and many others. The dialogue series began last Spring.
