Senior Basma Raza writes:
After presenting my project, “Doing Diversity Well on Campus and Beyond,” during Engaged Learning Week in February, I submitted my abstract to the Texas A&M annual Diversity Conference, “Communicating Diversity.” The conference invites submissions relating to cultural diversity in global technology, digital media, organizational communication and various other disciplines. My abstract was accepted and I will present my research on March 28th of this year. I will also submit a copy of my paper to compete for the Top Paper Award in the Communicating Diversity Paper Competition
I believe it is very important for campus communities to begin discussing the complex issues relating to diversity and how diversity is and is not implemented on campuses. This conversation can then expand to campus organizations at a macro level.
I am looking forward to my presentation at Texas A&M University and the further discussions which will arise from it. I am excited to share my findings with a group of academics and university administrators with the hope that it may lead to some much required and necessary changes.
